Abstract:

The Computer Program SARRA Short Arc Reduction of Radar Altimetry has been successfully revised to incorporate a geoid model employing spheroidal multiquadric functions. The simulations of several hundred passes of GEOS-C over the North Atlantic demonstrates the potential recovery of geoid undulations of accuracies better than one meter. Author
