While we have focused here on global mean sea level, satellite altimetry also provides the spatial variations of sea level change and these may soon be useful for attribution studies, as the different contributions to sea level change have distinctive regional patterns.
where ([[lambda].sub.i], [[phi].sub.i]) and h were the lunar longitudes, latitudes, and elevation of the laser altimetry footprints in the grid, respectively.

The result of the altimetry survey of the evaluation track of the self-propelled sprayers is presented in Figure 1.
The use of satellite altimetry has substantially contributed to the relevant analysis in remote locations of the open ocean.
T/P starts the precise satellite altimetry era, and Jason-1 and Jason-2 follow T/P.
Winning this new contract paves the way for our product policy to include swath altimetry, and bolsters Thales Alenia Space's world leadership in space altimetry."

Altimetry and topographic factors demonstrate that Tabriz has been located at high levels of 1300-2000m.
The mission doesn't travel to both ends of the Earth for the scenery of course -- the airborne mission is there to collect radar, laser altimetry, and other data on the changing ice sheets, glaciers, and sea ice of the Arctic and Antarctic.
Using the sensor hub, designers can efficiently scale a basic three-axis accelerometer system up to a full nine-axis inertial measurement unit with altimetry, ambient light sensing, temperature sensing, humidity sensing, and other capabilities.
* Sea level is measured by both tide gauges and, since 1992, satellite altimetry. One of the keepers of the satellite record told Professor Morner that the record had been interfered with to show sea level rising, because the raw data from the satellites showed no increase in global sea level at all.
