Valdes, James R.
MetadataShow full item record
The intent of this project was to test and evaluate a new data collection concept; that of utilizing a "store and forward" message system in a low earth orbiting satellite, and to determine its suitabilty for oceanographic data telemetry. This new generation of satellites, dubbed "MicroSats" because of their small size (a 9 in. cube), was developed by the Amateur Radio Satellite Corporation (AMSAT) to complement the existing HF and VHG terrestral Packet data switching networks.

Global distribution of the decay timescale of mixed layer inertial motions observed by satellite-tracked drifters Park, Jong Jin; Kim, Kuh; Schmitt, Raymond W. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-11-05)The decay timescale of mixed layer inertial amplitudes has been estimated from satellite tracked drifter trajectories from 1990 to 2004 as the e-folding timescale of the temporal correlation functions. The decay timescales ...
