The future Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission is designed to address this issue. Its main(More)
Since March 2002, the GRACE mission provides monthly global maps of geoid time-variations. These new data carry information on the continental water storage, including snow mass variations, with a ground resolution of ~600-700 km. We have computed monthly snow mass solutions from the inversion of the 22 GRACE geoids (04/2002-05/2004). The inverse approach(More)
Discussions This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Hydrology and Earth System Sciences (HESS). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in HESS if available. Abstract During the last few decades, satellite measurements have been widely used to study the continental water cycle, especially in regions where in situ measurements(More)
—Building on a recent suite of work that has demonstrated theoretical feasibility and operational readiness of a satellite altimeter based flood forecasting system, we recently put a progressively designed altimeter based transboundary flood forecasting system to the ultimate test of real-time operational delivery in Bangladesh. The JASON-2 satellite(More)
