Abstract:

Measurements from the SEASAT satellite radar altimeter are combined with the Doppler precise orbit, corrected for atmospheric and environmental effects, and reduced to along-track geoid heights and vertical deflections by an adaptive Kalman smoother, which is based upon a third-order Markov process. The altimeter data processing system at the Naval Surface Weapons Center NSWC is described in this report. Author
