Computer storage and retrieval of position-dependent data : technical report
Groman, Robert C.
MetadataShow full item record
A data storage and retrieval scheme has been designed and implemented which provides cost effective and easy access to location-dependent, 'geophysical' data. The system is operational on a Digital Equipment Corporation VAX-11/780 computer. Values of measured and computed geophysical parameters, such as geomagnetic field, water depth and gravity field, are stored in the library system. In addition, information about the data, such as port stops, project name and funding agency are also saved. These data are available to a time sharing computer user, validated to use the software package, through a query language designed to interact with this data library. The data can be searched and retrieved both sequentially and geographically.

Retrieving sea ice drag coefficients and turning angles from in situ and satellite observations using an inverse modeling framework Heorton, Harold; Tsamados, Michel; Cole, Sylvia T.; Ferreira, Ana M. G.; Berbellini, Andrea; Fox, Matthew; Armitage, Thomas (American Geophysical Union, 2019-08-14)For ice concentrations less than 85%, internal ice stresses in the sea ice pack are small and sea ice is said to be in free drift. The sea ice drift is then the result of a balance between Coriolis acceleration and stresses ...
Detection of a tropospheric ozone anomaly using a newly developed ozone retrieval algorithm for an up-looking infrared interferometer Lightner, K. J.; McMillan, W. W.; McCann, K. J.; Hoff, R. M.; Newchurch, M. J.; Hintsa, Eric J.; Barnet, C. D. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-03-25)On 2 June 2003, the Baltimore Bomem Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (BBAERI) recorded an infrared spectral time series indicating the presence of a tropospheric ozone anomaly. The measurements were collected ...
Examination of core samples from the Mount Elbert Gas Hydrate Stratigraphic Test Well, Alaska North Slope : effects of retrieval and preservation Kneafsey, Timothy J.; Lu, Hailong; Winters, William J.; Boswell, Ray M.; Hunter, Robert; Collett, Timothy S. (2009-10)Collecting and preserving undamaged core samples containing gas hydrates from depth is difficult because of the pressure and temperature changes encountered upon retrieval. Hydrate-bearing core samples were collected at ...
