    Airborne 2.25-cm wavelength radar backscatter measurements of low-wind-speed sea conditions were obtained off the coast of Texas in January 1971. These data are compared with unpublished NASA 2.25-cm backscatter measurements recorded over the Atlantic in 1970. The two data sets were in general agreement and supported results previously reported by other authors which showed the absence of a satura... View full abstract»

  • The Use of Lasers in Pollution Monitoring

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):7 - 17

    Optical techniques have opened up new possibilities in air pollution monitoring because of their remote-sensing capability, very high specificity, and short observation time. Techniques involving the use of lasers include Raman scattering, emission either from resonantly excited or from hot gases, and resonant absorption. Unique advantages in these applications are provided by the recently develop... View full abstract»

    One of the missions of the National Marine Water Quality Laboratory (NMWQL), situated on the shores of Narragansett Bay, is to use the bay as a laboratory to develop techniques for determining the state of the marine environment through continuous surveillance. Narragansett Bay is well suited for such an effort because of its close proximity to the urban center of Providence and to the laboratory ... View full abstract»

  • A Wave Follower for Field Study of Air-Sea Interactions

    In the study of wave generation by wind, an exploration of the wind (or pressure) field close to the water surface is critical. An electrohydraulic servomechanism, a "wave follower," has been designed to hold a probe at small distances above the sea surface while following the surface. The follower, mounted underwater, senses the location of the water surface with a capacitance wave probe. A hydra... View full abstract»

    Doppler return from the general case of a two-dimensional random rough surface is investigated. This is an extension of work recently reported for a special case of rough surface. Helmholtz integral approach is used, employing Kirchhoff's approximations in order to evaluate the integral for the plane-wave case. Two-dimensional transmitter/receiver gain function and reflection coefficients are used... View full abstract»

    The river and flood forecast and warning service of the National Weather Service depends on meteorological data and a vast hydrologic reporting network of nearly 5000 river and rainfall stations. Reports are collected daily or on a criteria basis during periods of heavy rainfall and/or high flow in the rivers. Less than 15 percent of the hydrologic network is telemetered. Although most of the obse... View full abstract»

    An optical Fourier transform analysis of a sea photograph taken under a particular skylight irradiance has been proposed by Stilwell [1] as a means of providing a quantitative description of the sea-vector wave-number spectrum. The process requires an explicit knowledge of the skylight irradiance reflected from the sea surface to the aerial camera. A first-order analysis shows that the photographi... View full abstract»

  • The Design and Operation of an Acoustic Radar

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):58 - 64

    The history and theory of the acoustic radar are briefly reviewed. It is pointed out that scattering of sound by the atmosphere is produced by temperature and wind fluctuations, but that only temperature variations produce backscatter. Concepts for using the acoustic radar to measure profiles of temperature, wind, and humidity are discussed. A technique for measuring humidity profile using the rel... View full abstract»

    A semiautomatic, self-leveling lunar gravimeter has been designed for the purpose of measuring gravity at predetermined stops along the route of a Lunar Rover Vehicle to obtain a gravity profile. The Traverse Gravimeter is completely self-contained and is powered by an internal battery. The gravity sensor is a vibrating string accelerometer (VSA) which is enclosed in a precision oven. Gravity data... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a summary of the experimental objectives and spacecraft instrumentation associated with the S-193 altimeter experiment for the 1973 Skylab mission. The experiment is, in general terms, directed toward geodetic altimetry and the acquisition of technical information needed to improve future precision altimeter designs, remote sensing of oceanographic and surface features, and mea...
