Reflecting the growing use of Earth observation, a software toolbox that provide users with the tools they need to process satellite data has been downloaded more than 500,000 times in less than five years.
This Telemetry Instrumentation Schedule contains a listing and channel assignment of all data processed by the Satellite Vehicle System (SVS) data system. A brief description of the telemetry format is included.
This SAR Ocean Feature Catalogue catalogue contains a selection of ERS-1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, which illustrate radar backscatter signatures over the North Atlantic Ocean and coastal waters of Norway under a variety of environmental conditions.
The worksheets in this pack are intended to familiarise pupils between the ages of 11 and 14 with the subject of satellite imagery. Satellite images are of increasing importance in a great many domains and are dramatically changing the way we view the world and perceive physical phenomena. Both literally and figuratively, they add a new dimension to our knowledge, whether it be in the study of natural phenomena or in assisting humans in their various activities. Their use -- and understanding -- by pupils is one of the aims of this project.
The results obtained in the study of land applications of space-borne scatterometers and radiometers are presented here. The investigations have been conducted using data from two microwave instruments: the ERS-1 Wind Scatterometer and the SSM/I radiometer. The potential of these present systems is analysed and new inversion techniques for various applications are developed. The study also emphasises the investigation of scatterometer image resolution enhancement techniques.
The purpose of this plan is to summarise the essential steps to be undertaken, over the next decade, by a global community of nations and intergovernmental, international, and regional organisations, to put in place a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The purpose of this document is to outline the work to be carried out for the validation of the ERS-1/2 SAR products generated by the ERS-1/2 National & Foreign Stations spread around the world, for the calibration of their SAR processor, and the line of responsibility for the various activities. The detailed description of the validation and calibration activities are specified later in this document after a short introduction on the ERS ground segment.
The purpose of this document is to help users identify the various types of data that are available from the ENVISAT, ERS-1 and ERS-2 Earth observing satellites, the kind of applications that the data may be used for and, importantly, the practical procedures required for access - including user registration and then search, selection and retrieval or ordering of the data of interest.
