- OverviewSWOT will make the first global survey of Earth's surface water, observe fine details of ocean surface topography, and measure how water bodies change over time.
- Flight SystemsThe SWOT satellite observatory, consisting of a payload module and spacecraft bus, is being built by NASA JPL and the Centre National D'Études Spatiales.
- Ground Systems & DataNASA and CNES will operate SWOT's ground systems, including satellite operation, acquisition of telemetry, and data processing, distribution, and archiving.
- AirSWOTAirSWOT, an instrument supporting the SWOT mission, will help the engineering team better understand the natural properties of Earth's surfaces.
- SWOT VisualizerInvestigate the coverage of Earth's surface by two SWOT instruments: KaRIn Interferometer and altimeter.
- Mission PeopleMission and Applications members of the SWOT Management Team.
- OverviewUsing radar interferometry to measure water elevations, SWOT will help us assess water resources, sea level change, coastal processes, and fine ocean features.
- OceanographySWOT will revolutionize oceanography by detecting small-scale features that contribute to ocean-atmosphere exchange of heat and carbon at 10x current resolution.
- HydrologySWOT will provide the first global view of freshwater bodies to allow scientists to determine changing volumes of fresh water at unprecedented resolution.
