Single receiver phase ambiguity resolution with GPS data
Global positioning system (GPS) data processing algorithms typically improve positioning solution accuracy by fixing double-differenced phase bias ambiguities to integer values. TheseExpand

Chapter 1 Satellite Altimetry
Publisher Summary The basic concept of satellite altimetry is to measure the range from the satellite to the sea surface. The altimeter transmits a short pulse of microwave radiation with known powerExpand

The Harvest Experiment: Monitoring Jason-1 and TOPEX/POSEIDON from a California Offshore Platform Special Issue: Jason-1 Calibration/Validation
We present calibration results from Jason-1 (2001–) and TOPEX/POSEIDON (1992–) overflights of a California offshore oil platform (Harvest). Data from Harvest indicate that current Jason-1 sea-surfaceExpand

The Harvest Experiment: Calibration of the Climate Data Record from TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and the Ocean Surface Topography Mission
We present a 17-year calibration record of precise (Jason-class) spaceborne altimetry from a California offshore oil platform (Harvest). Our analyses indicate that the sea-surface-height (SSH) biasesExpand

Zincophilic root foraging in Thlaspi caerulescens
Summary • Thlaspi caerulescens hyper-accumulates heavy metals, and localized root proliferation in response to patchily distributed metals may enhance heavy metal uptake. Here, an experimentalExpand

Improved determination of global mean sea level variations using TOPEX/POSEIDON altimeter data
The TOPEX/POSEIDON satellite altimeter mission has measured sea level on a global basis over the last 4 years at 10 day intervals. After correcting for a recently discovered error in theExpand

Calibration of TOPEX/POSEIDON at Platform Harvest
We present estimates for the mean bias of the TOPEX/POSEIDON NASA altimeter (ALT) and the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales altimeter (SSALT) using in-situ data gathered at Platform Harvest duringExpand

Towards the 1 mm/y Stability of the Radial Orbit Error at Regional Scales
Abstract An estimated orbit error budget for the Jason-1 and Jason-2 GDR-D solutions is constructed, using several measures of orbit error. The focus is on the long-term stability of the orbit timeExpand
