3rd Science Definition Team Meeting


January 14-16, 2014
Arlington, VA USA

The Science Definition Team (SDT) of the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission met in Arlington, Virginia during mid-January 2014. Plenary sessions outlined preparation for the SWOT mission design review including science returns, performance and error budget, and the Ka-band Radar Interferometer (KaRIn) instrument. Results from the oceanography splinter meeting included better understanding of signal-to-noise ratios, two-dimensional sub-mesoscale dynamics, along with corrections for waves and tides. The hydrology splinter session covered floodplains, digital elevation models, data assimilation, and calibration/validation issues.
