Joint Meeting of Ocean Sciences and Surface Water Hydrology in Support of Wide-Swath Altimetry Measurements


October 30-31, 2006
Washington, DC USA

Over 40 people participated in this wide-swath altimetry meeting held at the end of October 2006 in Washington, DC. The goal was to facilitate members of the ocean sciences and surface water hydrology communities in defining a satellite mission to measure Earth's surface water. Presentations and discussions focused on science issues and requirements; mission orbits; and data downlink. The meeting resulted in several action items including initializing the risk-reduction stage for the mission concept and producing a meeting report.
