Satellite image processing for the Agulhas Retroflexion region
MetadataShow full item record
LocationAgulhas Current (South Africa)
In order to analyze the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer satellite data from South Africa, a software package has been written. Methodology and algorithms are described which create geometrically corrected registered satellite images over the Agulhas Retroflexion region. Also discussed are programs to overlay latitude and longitude lines, ship tracks, and ancillary data. A method of masking the land and compositing images for cloud removal is also described.

Coastal ocean processes : wind-driven transport processes on the U.S. west coast : Portland, Oregon, Workshop July 14-16, 1993 Smith, R. L.; Brink, Kenneth H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)Wind-driven transport occurs on nearly all of the world's continental shelves. A workshop, open to all interested scientists, was held in Portland, Oregon, on July 14-16, 1993, to assess the need for a major interdisciplinary ...
Seismic constraints on the processes and consequences of secondary igneous evolution of Pacific oceanic lithosphere Feng, Helen S.-H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-02)This thesis examines the structure of Pacific oceanic lithosphere that has been modified by post-formation magmatism in order to better understand the processes of secondary magmatic evolution of the lithosphere, which ...
Elevation change of the Greenland Ice Sheet due to surface mass balance and firn processes, 1960–2014 Munneke, Peter Kuipers; Ligtenberg, Stefan R. M.; Noel, Brice P. Y.; Howat, Ian M.; Box, Jason E.; Mosley-Thompson, Ellen; McConnell, Joseph R.; Steffen, Konrad; Harper, Joel T.; Das, Sarah B.; van den Broeke, Michiel R. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2015-11-02)Observed changes in the surface elevation of the Greenland Ice Sheet are caused by ice dynamics, basal elevation change, basal melt, surface mass balance (SMB) variability, and by compaction of the overlying firn. The last ...
