Welcome to CSR's TOPEX/Poseidon web page. The Center for Space Research is currently involved in the following TOPEX/Poseidon research projects:
|TOPEX/Poseidon Educational Outreach Page
This page was developed by the Center for Space Research and the Texas Space Grant Consortium in a comprehensive effort to distribute data from the TOPEX/Poseidon satellite to the general public. An informative and educational resource for teachers and students.
|Improvement of Geoid and Mean Sea Surface Models for Oceanographic Applications
Geocentric sea surface heights are currently being measured with an unprecedented accuracy by the TOPEX/POSEIDON radar altimeter. However, the use of these measurements to infer the mean oceanic circulation requires an accurate marine geoid model. This investigation described here utilizes new approaches and incorporates new data sets to improve the accuracy of the global marine geoid.
