Altimeter analysis of ocean currents
MetadataShow full item record
Altimeter data from satellites are being used in an ongoing effort to obtain data sets with temporal as well as global coverage. This report describes the algorithms formulated and the programs written for the use of altimeter data from the European Space Agency (ESA) European Remote Sensing Satellite, ERS-1, for a repeat track analysis of ocean currents. It also presents some results from the California Current region.

Moulton, Melissa; Elgar, Steve; Raubenheimer, Britt (2013-06)Surfzone bathymetry often is resolved poorly in time because watercraft surveys cannot be performed when waves are large, and remote sensing techniques have limited vertical accuracy. However, accurate high-frequency ...
Assimilation of altimeter data in a quasi-geostrophic model of the Gulf Stream system : a dynamical perspective Capontondi, Antonietta (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-02)The dynamical aspects involved in the assimilation of altimeter data in a numerical ocean model have been investigated. The model used for this study is a quasi-geostrophic model of the Gulf Stream region. The data that ...
Dynamics of the Antarctic circumpolar current : evidence for topographic effects from altimeter data and numerical model output Gille, Sarah T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-02)Geosat altimeter data and numerical model output are used to examine the circulation and dynamics of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). The mean sea surface height across the ACC has been reconstructed from height ...
