Alishouse represents a specific, individual, material embodiment of a distinct intellectual or artistic creation found in Indiana State Library. Dr. Gladys West, like the "human computers" at NASA who became famous with the book Hidden Figures, began her career by performing the complex hand calculations required before the computer age. However, her greatest accomplishment was the creation of an extremely detailed geodetic model of the Earth which became the foundation for the Global.

Seasat Seasat book the first Earth-orbiting satellite designed for remote sensing of the Earth's oceans and had on board the first spaceborne synthetic-aperture radar (SAR). The mission was designed to demonstrate the feasibility of global satellite monitoring of oceanographic phenomena and to help determine the requirements for an operational ocean remote sensing satellite or: Seasat book / JPL / Caltech.

SeaSat Mission — the world's first satellite mission dedicated to oceanography. Spacecraft Launch Mission Status Sensor Complement Success Statement References.

SeaSat (also referred to as SeaSat-A prior to launch and SeaSat-1 after launch) is a pioneering Earth observation experimental mission of NASA/JPL; the first ever civilian spaceborne imaging radar instrument (SAR) was flown on SeaSat.

One of the earliest Earth-observing satellites, Seasat was designed to test various oceanographic sensors and gain a better understanding of Earth's seas. Seasat operated in Earth orbit for days, measuring sea-surface winds and temperatures, wave heights, atmospheric liquid water content, sea ice features and ocean topography, before a Author: NASA/JPL.

The narrator of The Seas lives in a tiny, remote, alcoholic, cruel seaside town. An occasional chambermaid, granddaughter to a typesetter, and daughter to a dead man, awkward and brave, wayward and willful, she is in love (unrequited) with an Iraq War veteran thirteen years her senior.4/5.

Seasat had a free and open data policy; and after a very slow start, the experiment team concept (where team members had a lengthy period of exclusive access to the data) for the Nimbus-7 CZCS was replaced with that same policy.

Given access to the data, delays were due to a combination of sorting out the algorithms for converting the satellite. SEASAT shallow water wave and ocean current refraction analysis [John G Hayes] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : John G Hayes.

The SEASAT satellite launched by United States on Jun. 28, began the evolution of space-based SAR that continues to this day (McCandless and Jackson, ). A synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system operated with an L-band ( GHz), HH polarization, and a fixed incident angle was first launched into the space as an important payload.

During its brief day lifetime, SeaSat collected more information about the oceans than had been acquired in the previous years of shipboard.

Seasat was the second satellite carrying a synthetic aperture radar (SAR). It was the first designed for remote sensing of the Earth's oceans. The mission was designed to demonstrate the feasibility of global satellite monitoring of oceanographic phenomena and to help determine the requirements for an operational ocean remote sensing satellite system.

O SEASAT (ou Seasat), [1] de origem Norte americana, foi o primeiro satélite de sensoriamento remoto projetado para atuar sobre os oceanos, e levava a bordo o primeiro Radar de Abertura Sintética (SAR). O satélite foi operado pela NASA e gerenciado pelo Jet Propulsion Laboratory ().

A missão tinha como objetivos genéricos: demonstrar a viabilidade de uma monitoração dos fenômenos. The SAR is emphasized, covering the imaging of ocean waves, Fourier transforms of SAR wave imagery, and SAR imagery of internal waves, slicks, and streaks.

The results of comparing wind and wave fields from SEASAT sensors and JASIN ships are summarized. Her most recent full-length book, Sea Sick: The Global Ocean in Crisis, is an international bestseller that won the prestigious Grantham Prize for Excellence in Reporting on the Environment.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Seasat was the first Earth-orbiting satellite specifically designed and tasked for the remote sensing of Earth’s oceans. Through NASA sponsorship, JPL managed and operated Seasat, which was launched on 28 June Seasat carried a payload of five scientific instruments that enabled measurements of sea surface wind velocity, land and sea.

On the night of JSeasat was launched from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base aboard an Atlas-Agena rocket, carrying with it three prototype radar instruments and two radiometers. During its brief life, Seasat collected more information about ocean physics than had been acquired in the previous years of shipboard research.

Seabook serves as a key information source for seafarers and shore-based employees to promote safer seas and cleaner waters. This easy-to-use, accessible-offline mobile app serves as a reference tool for key elements of Ship stability, Navigation, COLREG and Marine engineering, and is designed for seafarers, cadets, maritime students and master mariners alike/5(K).

Some important concepts of the SEASAT-SASS program are described and some of the decisions made during the program as to methods for relating wind to backscatter are discussed. The radar scatterometer design is analyzed along with the model function, which is an empirical relationship between the backscatter value and the wind speed, wind.
