This letter deals with the development of geophysical model functions (GMFs) specific to Oceansat-2 Scatterometer (OSCAT) for the operational retrieval of global ocean surface vector winds from OSCAT. It makes use of OSCAT-measured radar backscatter and the surface analysis winds at 10-m neutral-stability height from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) model for the period from November 2009 to April 2010. The OSCAT-specific GMF has been used for retrieving the vector solutions from backscatter data as well as for the directional ambiguity removal. The procedures and the conditions incorporated for the same are presented in this letter.
