1st Science Definition Team Meeting


January 28-30, 2013
Pasadena, CA USA

The first Science Definition Team (SDT) of the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission met in Pasadena, CA at the end of January 2013. All 38 science investigation teams participated along with NASA and Centre National d'Études Spatiales (CNES) mission team members, bringing the total to over 70 attendees. Meeting objectives were to review the status of the program and mission development, review the science goals and requirements, facilitate interaction among SDT members and the mission team, identify issues that require SDT recommendations, and formulate near-term actions. Splinter meetings were held on the topics of oceanography and hydrology, focusing on mission development issues such as orbit selection, instrument operation, and high-resolution data coverage.
