Atmospheric Satellite Observations

Atmospheric Satellite Observations: Variation Assimilation and Quality Assurance provides a useful reference to satellite data assimilation. Drawing from her 30+ years researching, supervising graduate students and teaching courses on atmospheric data assimilation, Dr Zou has written an easy to use, complete guide on satellite data assimilation. Organized in two sections, mathematical concepts and variational data assimilation, topics covered include linear algebra to aid in reading involved matrices, frequently used statistical methods, the interpolation role of function fitting, filtering when dealing with real observations, minimization as used in data assimilation systems, 3D-Var and the inverse problem it solves, the practical development of adjoint models and the 4D-Var method. It further reviews different systems specific coverage like GPS radio occultation (RO) and GOES Imagers. This book concludes by tying together everything covered and applying all concepts to the observation of hurricanes.

• Publisher : National Academies Press
• Release : 03 July 2003

This report addresses the transition of research satellites, instruments, and calculations into operational service for accurately observing and predicting the Earthâ€™s environment. These transitions, which take place in large part between NASA and NOAA, are important for maintaining the health, safety, and prosperity of the nation, and for achieving the vision of an Earth Information System in which quantitative information about the complete Earth system is readily available to myriad users. Many transitions have been ad hoc, sometimes taking

Atmospheric Measurements from Satellite Observations of Stellar Refraction

• Publisher : Unknown Publisher
• Release : 07 December 1962

A method of obtaining atmospheric density, temperature and pressure data by observing refraction of stellar images with instruments in a satellite is described. Data acquisition and altitude range is such as to permit making of weather maps between 25 mb and perhaps 500 mb. (Author).

Atmospheric Density Determination from Satellite Observations

• Release : 07 December 1964

The atmospheric density at perigee height is computed from satellite observations by the following procedure: (1) obtain accurate orbital elements from a differential orbit correction procedure, (2) fit each element as a function of time, (3) analyze thee residuals in mean anomally, (4) compute the rate of change of the anomalistic period, (5) derive the density by integrating Sterne's formula considering a Jacchia's model atmosphere. The data processing technique is given more emphasis than the analytical formulation in this attempt at an automatic procedure for
