Briscoe, Melbourne G.
MetadataShow full item record
This document contains two workshop reports and several brief technical reports, all on aspects of ocean data telemetry and platform positioning. The principal topic is a Summary of an Ocean Telemetry Workshop held at the AGU/ ASLO Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, on 15 January 1986. A brief version of this summary appeared in EOS, Transactions of the American Geophysical Union, 4 March 1986. Both the full summary presented here and the brief form in EOS were coauthored by D. Brooks of Texas A&M University. Included here is a list of the attendees at that workshop (Appendix A), and a description of the goals and membership of the AGU Ocean Sciences Section Technical Committee on Ocean Data Telemetry and Platform Positioning, which was formed at that meeting (Appendix B). An earlier, informal, local workshop on telemetry was held at Woods Hole in March 1985; a report on that meeting is in Appendix C. Technical summaries are given on Meteor-Burst Telemetry (Appendix D), the GEOSTAR positioning system (Appendix E), tradeoffs for various telemetry systems (Appendix F), a proposed communications network [authored by M. Comberiate from NASA Goddard) (Appendix G), and the possibilities of a new kind of HF telemetry system (Appendix H). A small discussion at Woods Hole prior to the January Telemetry Workshop is reported in Appendix I.
