Surface elevation [eta]([theta], [lambda], t) relative to an estimated geoid is partially, but not completely, determined by the altimetric data: the state estimate is simultaneously being fit to meteorological forcing; the thermal, salinity, and ice-cover fields; and any other data (e.g., gravity and altimeter height changes) that are present.
An assessment of the altimetric information derived from spacebourne SAR (RADARSAT-1, SRTM3) and optical (ASTER) data for cartographic application in the Amazon region.
In order to obtain certain results with a superior altimetric precision, a digital elevation model will be also generated on the basis of the topographical map at the scale of 1:5.000.
The filling in of a vertical aven approximately 10 m high inside the cave is therefore more recent than the marine episode which, using altimetric criteria, correlates with the last interglacial period (Breuil & Zbyszewski, 1942).
In the CW mode, when the altimetric beat frequency becomes equal or greater than its maximum corresponding to the critical altitude [H.sub.CR], the ICW mode is enabled.
The French company GTM Construction is developing a complete guidance and control system for construction equipment such as graders and bulldozers by using satellites that can guarantee sub-centimeter altimetric accuracy.

Over the past few years Alvin's imaging equipment has been upgraded significantly to include a high-resolution, color video camera; scaling lasers for quantitative measurement of objects in still and video images; metal-halide, deep-sea lighting for wider-area observation and improved video imaging; and a 675-kilohertz scanning altimetric sonar for seafloor mapping with a vertical resolution of about 10 centimeters.

At the GRND test point, if we compare the two solutions estimated with the ETRS89 solution offered by the Spanish National Geographic Institute (IGNE) shown in Table 2, we check that the altimetric bias is due to the ERGNSS solution.
