1st Applications Working Group Meeting

January 12, 2015
La Jolla, CA USA

The SWOT Applications Working Group and members of the Science Definition Team held their first meeting on January 12, 2015. It provided an opportunity for early engagement of key user organizations (USGS, NOAA, Navy, MERCATOR, etc.) and focused on the development of SWOT-related applications (operational and research) in hydrology and oceanography.

Workshop participants included 27 people who attended on site, and 12 who participated online. Examples of existing and current applications relevant to SWOT were highlighted, followed by a tutorial on use of altimeter data for societal benefit. Group discussions led to a recommendation to the SDT regarding the need for near-real-time products (less than 3 days).
