abstract

 

This talk is about a satellite mission called Surface Water and Ocean Topography, or SWOT.  The objectives of the mission are to use a next-generation radar altimeter to map the elevation of water on Earth, over both the ocean and inland waters with high spatial resolution.  The mission will address some key challenges facing the earth science community in studying the impact of climate change to our societies. The radar interferometry altimeter will provide ocean surface topography at resolution of 500 m for studying small-scale ocean circulation in the open ocean as well as coastal zones.  Over land, the radar observations will provide information on lake water storage and river discharge, which are key variables of the water cycle on land.  The radar will also measure the freeboard of sea ice and the elevation of the polar ice sheets.  SWOT is a collaborative mission of the US NASA and the French Space Agency, CNES, with contributions from the Canadian Space Agency and the UK Space Agency.  The mission will be launched in 2021.  An overview of the science program of the mission and its opportunities to the international science communities will be presented.

 

About the Speaker:

 

Dr. Lee-Lueng Fu is a JPL Fellow and Senior Research Scientist.  He has been the Project Scientist for JPL’s satellite altimetry missions for oceanographic and geodetic studies since 1988, including TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, and Jason-2.  He is currently the Project Scientist for the Surface Water and Ocean Topography Mission (SWOT).


He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, and a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society. Recently he was awarded the COSPAR International Cooperation Medal for his leadership in the development and continuation of satellite altimetry missions.
