6th Science Definition Team Meeting


July 7-9, 2015
Toulouse, France

The Science Definition Team (SDT) of the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission held their last meeting in mid-July 2015. Over 80 presentations were given, focusing on scientific objectives for the one-day repeat phase of the SWOT mission and beyond, along with detailed calibration/validation plans. The SDT also discussed SWOT model simulations and data products.
