Bathymetry is foundational data, providing basic infrastructure for scientific, economic, educational, managerial, and political work. Applications as diverse as tsunami hazard assessment, communications cable and pipeline route planning, resource exploration, habitat management, and territorial claims under the Law of the Sea all require reliable(More)
The GeoSAR single-pass P-band and X-band IFSAR system was employed 09 April 2012 to acquire ice data over the city of Barrow, Alaska, extending into the Chukchi Sea to the west and the Beaufort Sea to the northeast. The acquisition covered two back-to-back flights obtaining high quality single-pass interferometric X-band and P-band data. Some of the P-band(More)
Suban field in southern Sumatra, Indonesia, is a fractured carbonate/crystalline wet-gas reservoir located in a tectonically active island-arc setting. Reservoir-scale right-oblique reverse faults and folds that have trapped the hydrocarbons have been related previously to deformation in the back-arc setting of southern Sumatra associated with oblique(More)
Perhaps the most important ocean science observation in the last two decades was provided by the Geosat radar altimeter during its 18-month geodetic mission (1985-86). The declassification of these data in July of 1995 set off a flurry of activity in basic research, industrial research/development, and public interest (Appendix A). While these data fill a(More)
This paper was presented to the High-resolution Ocean Topography Science Working Group to present the biogeochemical aspects of mesoscale variability and how it relates to the observed baroclinic field sensed by onorbit microwave altimeters. As such, this paper summarizes the results of three projects the author is involved in: space/time patterns of(More)
We consider an Arctic drilling platform, which must withstand seasonal ice floes and be protected against extreme ice features. Adequate ice floe thickness estimates are not discernible from satellite images, so autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) equipped with sonar scan the thickness of the floes. We approximate this system by an M/G/k+G queue and(More)
