European Storm Surge Measured By CryoSat
2013-12-09 12:58:42

ESA ESA’s CryoSat satellite measured the storm surge from the recent North Sea storms, as high waters passed through the Kattegat sea between Denmark and Sweden. During 5–6 December, a major storm passed through northern Europe causing flooding, blackouts, grounding flights and bringing road, rail and sea travel to a halt. Since the storm coincided with a period of high tides in the North Sea, there were extremely high sea levels – a ‘storm surge’. In the UK, sea levels...

Jason-1 Satellite Decommissioned
2013-07-03 14:48:04

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online More than 11 years ago, NASA launched the Jason-1 ocean altimetry satellite into orbit in a joint venture with the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES). The satellite would be used to map sea levels, wave height and wind speed from miles above the ocean's surface. Since that time, one successor satellite, the Jason-2, has been sent into space to supplement this information. The Jason-3 is expected to launch in 2015. Two weeks...

Seasat Blazed The Trail For Many Mission
2013-06-28 05:27:14

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Even if they don't last long, history tends to look fondly upon trailblazers. Thirty-five years ago this week, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) launched an experimental satellite called Seasat, with the mission to study Earth and its seas. An unexpected malfunction ended the mission after just 106 days, leading some to look on the satellite as a failure. Seasat is still in orbit, however, shining in the night sky at magnitude...

Sensors For Seafaring Satellite Shipped By NASA
2013-05-23 15:21:07

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Three NASA-built instruments that are integral components of the next in a series of U.S./European ocean altimetry satellites have arrived in France for integration with their spacecraft in preparation for a 2015 launch. Jason-3 will extend the two-decade series of satellites that are tracking global sea level changes and enabling more accurate weather, ocean and climate forecasts. The three instruments are a microwave radiometer and two location-finding...

A radar altimeter measures altitude above the terrain beneath an aircraft as opposed to a barometric altimeter which provides the distance above a pre-determined datum, usually sea level. Radar is the underpinning principle of the system. Radio waves that are reflected back from the ground are timed in order to calculate speed, distance, and time which are related to the each other and can be used to calculate the distance from one point to another. Lloyd Espenschied invented the radar...
