Developing Use of Altimetry for Climate Studies

Project Description
Developing Use of Altimetry for Climate Studies (DUCAS) is a European
project funded by the Environmental and Climate program, in the
framework of the Centerfor Earth Observations. DUCAS is also partially
funded by the Region Midi-Pyrenees.

It is lead by Phillip Gasper, from CLS-Argos.

Its aim is to develop altimetry applications for climate studies, and
for climate prediction at timescales of seasons to years, in
particular using coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation
models. It thus develops both a Near-Real-Time altimeter data
processing facility at CLS-Argos and climate applications in the four
climate groups.
