Record #96549:

Slope correction by relocation for satellite radar altimetry / A. Paul R. Cooper.

Title: Slope correction by relocation for satellite radar altimetry / A. Paul R. Cooper.
Author(s): Cooper, A. Paul R.
Date: [1989]
Publisher: [Ottawa]: IGARSS'89. 12th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing
Abstract: Drawback of present-day altimeters is that they have large footprint, perhaps 20 km across, and measure range to nearest point on surface within that footprint. This results in apparent errors of up to 100 m in surface elevation measurements, depending on slope. This paper addresses problem of converting range measurements from altimeter data into true surface elevations. Although this is discussed in context of ice sheets, it is applicable to other land surfaces.
