AMichel- Investigation on the Envisat altimetric height error over the Antarctic ice sheet: comparison with Icesat data on crossover points
(Media / AMichel- Investigation on the Envisat altimetric height error over the Antarctic ice sheet: comparison with Icesat data on crossover points)
In this poster, we investigate the surface elevation difference between two altimeters, RA-2 from Envisat and GLAS from Icesat. Both satellites were time-coincident and covered Antarctica providing informations about the ice sheet characteristics. Unfortunately, radar altimeters give a biased...
SRose- Arctic Tides from GPS on Sea-ice / Poster
(Media / SRose- Arctic Tides from GPS on Sea-ice / Poster)
The presence of sea-ice in the Arctic Ocean plays a significant role in the Arctic climate. Sea ice dampens the ocean tide amplitude with the result that global tidal models which use only astronomical data perform less accurately in the polar regions. This study presents a kinematic processing...
