A global network of permanent sites for calibrating satellite altimetry missions (CALT)
Date du début: 1 oct. 2012, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The proposed CALT project aims to bring together the operators of existing and future satellite altimetry permanent calibration sites. This would improve the overall services for the altimeter biases and drifts for each satellite mission (e.g., Jason, Envisat, GFO, Altika, HY-2, Cryosat-2, Sentinel, etc.) and cross calibrate different missions at different world locations on a common and long-term basis. This proposed project would (1) integrate the existing Cal/Val sites; (2) incorporate into CALT the developing sites in other locations (i.e., China and Brazil), (3) develop a unified approach for standards, specifications and procedures for altimetry calibration; and (5) disseminate results within the standards given by the Group on Earth Observation, GLOSS and CEO for sea level changes and for monitoring climate change.
