The scientific justification for obtaining ocean wave data of various kinds with Seasat-ASynthetic aperture radar images of sea surface in deep water as well as two candidate instruments that essentially scan along a line are considered for obtaining spectral wave information with SEASAT-A. An altimeter provides data on wave height for every 50 or 100 kilometers along subsatellite track routine. A combination of these instruments is proposed to obtain wind generated ocean waves and swells.
