The launch of ADEOS in August 1996 with POLDER, TOMS, and OCTS instruments on board and the future launch of EOS-AM 1 in mid-1998 with MODIS and MISR instruments on board start a new era in remote sensing of aerosol as part of a new remote sensing of the whole Earth system (see a list of the acronyms in the Notation section of the paper). These platforms(More)
This White Paper on the DESERTEC Concept provides information on the potential of the largest but least tapped source of energy on earth, the solar radiation of deserts, and on how it could be put into service for energy, water and climate security. For the regions of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa (EUMENA), the White Paper quantifies the(More)
After the successful Phase I of the GEWEX continental-scale Baltic Sea Experiment (BALTEX), which brought major results in both science (such as coupled regional models for the Baltic Sea basin with the first water budget estimates established and new data sets assimilated) and also infrastructure (e.g. four dedicated data centres for meteorological,(More)
A global dataset of two years (September 1998 to December 2000) of ERS SAR data was reprocessed to more than one million SAR imagettes. Met ocean Parameters like significant ocean wave height (H s), wind speed (U 10) and mean wave period (T m-10) are derived from the SAR images using a new empirical algorithm CWAVE [1]. The results are compared to(More)
