    Every once in a while, I’ve had the opportunity to work on something that has turned out to be an industry game changer. Giving a nod to my background in computer forensics, one recent game changer that I’ve been privileged to be a part of is the CRU / WiebeTech “Ditto” product, which sucks information from hard drives in a forensically sound manner. In fact, it can do it from halfway.   The radio altimeter differs from the barometric altimeter in showing altitude above the ground below rather than above sea level. That is a critical difference for improved flight safety. In , the FM radio altimeter was first demonstrated in New York by Bell : Mary Bellis. interpolation, nonlinear smoothing, filtering, and prediction The topics of smoothing and filtering, commonly referred to as “data assimilation” in the oceanographic and meteorological literature, have attracted a great deal of attention of late. ICESat (Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite) was a satellite mission for measuring ice sheet mass balance, cloud and aerosol heights, as well as land topography and vegetation characteristics. It operated as part of NASA's Earth Observing was launched 13 January on a Delta II rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California into a near-circular, near-polar orbit with Mission type: Remote sensing.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

The purpose of this handbook is to provide basic information about the release of the Geosat altimeter JGM-3 geophysical data records (GDRs). More extensive documentation and analysis will The Complete Geosat altimeter GDR handbook book provided in the online handbook, which will be available from the National Oceanographic.

GEOSAT Follow-On (GFO) Altimeter Document Series Volume 1 GFO Altimeter Engineering Assessment Report From Launch to Acceptance 10 February to 29 November 2 Version David W. Hancock III George S.

Lockwood, David W. Hancock, George S. Hayne, Ronald L. Brooks. The data base is constructed using the Geophysical Data Records (GDR) for each altimeter, and correcting H s measurements according to previous studies. For the present wave model assessment study, we used data from Jason-1 Picot et al.,GEOSAT Follow-On Naval Oceanographic Office,and ENVISAT (ESA, ).

Evensen et. al., assimilated Geosat altimeter data in an ocean circulation monsoon to study the shedding of Agulhas rings. Further altimeter studies in the northern Indian Ocean have been done by Perigaud et.

al., who studied the variability of the Somali Current using Seasat altimeter data. The U.S. Navy GEOdetic SATellite, GEOSAT, was launched on 12 Marchinto an km, deg inclination orbit, carried an altimeter that was capable of measuring the distance from satellite to sea surface with a relative precision of about 5 cm.

After a classified mission for the Navy, GEOSAT's scientific Exact Repeat Mission (ERM). The GEOSAT attitude control subsystem (gravity-gradient stabilization) was designed to point the radar altimeter to within 1º of nadir 98% of the time. The system components were a 6 m scissors boom with 45 kg end mass, redundant momentum wheels for roll and yaw stiffness, and pitch and roll attitude control thrusters.

The gravimetric geoid undulation was used to compute dynamic topography along Geosat tracks for comparison with existing estimates based on hydrographic data in the Gulf Stream region. The agreement between these two estimates is on the order of ±15 cm although the discrepancies can reach 60 by: The mean sea surface, OSUMSS92, used for the initial TOPEX/POSEIDON GDRs was that developed by Basic and Rapp (Ref.

Based on that experience fully reprocessed ERS-1 altimeter data is used to perform a time series of monthly sea surface height models from April to April Cited by: 1. However, an altimeter measure-ment is subject to many disturbances which have to be accounted for (Figure 1).

An altimeter measurement may be written in the following form: h⁄ = h+h sg +hi +ha +hs +hg +ht +h0 +† (1) All the individual terms will be explained briefly, together with an accuracy assessment for the SEASAT and GEOSAT altimeter.

GEOSAT radar altimeter, developed by JHU/APL, was an enormous success. Built with early 's technology, the GEOSAT altimeter weighed pounds and consumed watts. The GFO radar altimeter, under development by E-Systems Inc., will achieve the GEOSAT measurement capability, but at one-third the weight and one-half the power ( GEOSAT Follow-On (GFO) Altimeter Document Series Volume 3 GFO Altimeter Engineering Assessment Report The First 20 Cycles Since Acceptance Novem to Novem Version 1 David W.

Appendix B Satellite Altimeter Data 17 March, JERICHO R3/ — App. B Page 2 B Significant Wave Height Because of the time difference between the reception of the radar signal reflected from the wave peaks and the wave troughs, the leading edge of the returned altimeter pulse is smeared out in time.

A well-defined altimeter NRCS decrease with increasing QuikSCAT wind speed is observed up to hurricane force winds, but matchup data are lacking above this level.

The dashed curve in Fig. 1 represents the Young () model. It is clear this linear Geosat model lies near the data but slightly underestimates the NRCS saturation at highest by: Here, f k denotes the planetary vorticity f 0 + β 0 (y − y 0) except in the bottom layer, where f 3 = f 0 + β 0 (y − y 0) + f 0 h(x)/H 3; H k is the thickness and Ψ k the streamfunction of layer k; and g k,k+1 is the reduced acceleration of gravity between layers k and k + 1.

In our experiments their values are g 1,2 = × 10 −2 m s −2 and g 2,3 = × 10 −3 m s − by: 2. Each GDR spans 24 hours and consists of data for either 14 or 15 complete revolutions, starting and ending as close as possible to maximum latitude (72 degrees north).

Included in the GEOSAT GDR's are measured height between the satellite and the sea surface, satellite height, sea height, geoid, and significant wave height. Basin-scale variability in the Labrador Sea from TOPEX/POSEIDON and Geosat altimeter data Guoqi Han and Moto Ikeda • Coastal Ocean Sciences, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Bedford Institute of Oceanography Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada Abstract.

The TOPEX/POSEIDON altimeter data and the Geosat altimeter data from. Most of the 63 years of altimeter data were collected from the repeat orbit configuration that is optimal for recovering changes in ocean surface height associated with currents and tides [Fu and Cazenave, ].

The only sources of nonrepeat altimeter data are the geodetic phases of Geosat (18 months) and ERS-1 (11 months). This new third edition is a major and complete update of the popular textbook: Improved throughout for clarity, with chapter objectives presented at the beginning of each chapter and summaries, "skills check" mini-quizzes, and practice problems listed at the endMissing: Geosat.

Radar Altimeter: RA is the altimeter onboard ERS-1 and 2; RA-2 is onboard Envisat. Radiometer: Passive instrument that detects and measures radiant energy, usually in the microwave, infrared and near-infrared wavebands.

Radiometers flown on altimetry satellites help us to measure water vapor and liquid water content in the atmosphere. A simple barometric altimeter includes a sealed metal chamber, a spring, and a pointer that shows altitude in meters or feet.

The chamber expands as air pressure decreases and contracts as it increases, bending the spring and moving the pointer. An altimeter can be mounted on an aircraft’s instrument panel or worn on a person’s g: Geosat.

The GEOSAT (GEOdetic SATellite) was a U.S. Navy Earth observation satellite, launched on Ma into an km, ° inclination orbit, with a nodal period of about seconds. The satellite carried a radar altimeter capable of measuring the distance from the satellite to sea surface with a relative precision of about 5 or: United States Navy.

A Geosat altimeter wind speed algorithm is derived by cross-calibrating Geosat and Seasat altimeter estimates of the normalized radar cross section co and modifying an existing Seasat altimeter wind speed model function to obtain a model function appropriate for Ceosat obser-vations.
