A combination of Sentinel-1 and Meteosat datasets in recent studies of
the same authors exhibited a link between sea surface wind patterns and
deep convective clouds aloft. This observation strengthened the
assumption that Convective System (CS) vertical downdrafts produce
significant horizontal surface winds when they collide the sea surface.
The Aeolus new observations may bring additional credits to this
assumption by the measurements of vertical wind profiles. The
combination of these three satellites (Sentinel-1, Aeolus, and Meteosat)
with a slight lag in observation time illustrates the significant
results of a (near) three-dimensional observation of the CS over the
sea. They also indicate the matching in space and time apparition of
deep convective clouds viewed by Meteosat, intense downdrafts viewed by
Aeolus, and high surface winds estimated by Sentinel-1.
