Air-Sea Gas Flux : Progress and Future Prospects

SHOC main objective is to organize a 2 months campaign during the 2016 hurricane season in order to gather extreme wind observations from new European spaceborne sensors and additional reference data. As opposed to altimeter, scatterometer or radiometer missions, Synthetic Aperture Radar missions have a limited duty cycle and can operate in several acquisitions modes, yielding to possible conflicts between users. The primary objective of SHOC is thus to maximize Sentinel-1 acquisitions over hurricanes to feed research and development activities without critically impacting other existing services.

SHOC campaign has been proposed to European Space Agency (ESA) by LOPS in the framework of ESA SEOM (Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions) study. This is a joint study with NOAA, CLS, ODL and NORUT.

Sentinel 1B: décollage!

Publié le 25 avril

Le jumeau de Sentinel 1A vient d'être lancé de Kourou le 25 avril à 21h UTC pour compléter la constellation radar 1A + 1B du programme Copernicus. Le LOPS est particulièrement impliqué en tant que "Expert Support Laboratory" de l'Agence Spatiale Européenne pour la validation du "mode vagues" et la mesure des vents, vagues et courants de surface, et l'exploitation scientifique de ces nouvelles données. La mise a disposition des données et leur suivi se fait en partenariat avec les sociétés CLS et Oceandalab.
