The DAVID scientific satellite: Mission analysis and orbit selection

M. C. Francalanci; A. Salome; G. Varacalli; M. Ruggieri; C. Bonifazi Proceedings, IEEE Aerospace Conference, 2002

The LEO-based multi-experiment DAVID (DAta and Video Interactive Distribution) scientific mission of the Italian Space Agency is presently undertaking phase B on the program activities. It aims at testing the viability of the exchange of large amount of data, through a W-band user link and either a Ka-band inter orbit link or a direct-to-ground link, and the effectiveness of resource ...


Antarctic Sea-Ice Classification Based on Conditional Random Fields From RADARSAT-2 Dual-Polarization Satellite Images

Tingting Zhu; Fei Li; Georg Heygster; Shengkai Zhang IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, 2016

In January 2014, Chinese National Antarctic Research Expedition (CHINARE) 30th cruise raised public concern since the Xuelong, the Chinese polar research vessel, was trapped in the sea-ice zone (66°39'20.88"S, 144°25'2.28"E) in the vicinity of the Adélie Depression area on the east Antarctic continent. This event highlighted the importance of an operational sea-ice classification map for ice routing to serve ship ...

Prediction of meteorite concentration areas in Prince Charles Mountains, East Antarctica

Fang Wang; Xiao Cheng; Yan Liu; Fengming Hui; Tingbiao Chen; Yufang Ye; Zhixin Wang; Chen Zhao 2011 19th International Conference on Geoinformatics, 2011

The Grove Mountains (Grove) in East Antarctica is recognized as the important meteorite concentration area and has the notable meteorite concentration mechanism, being the basis to assess the possible concentration region in Prince Charles Mountains (PCMs) of the Lambert Glacier, East Antarctica. The meteorite concentration mechanism requires understanding of the glacial flow, the local climate, and other factors that may ...

  • Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate in the Anthropocene

    Humans are changing critical environmental conditions in many ways. Here, the important changes in atmospheric chemistry and climate are discussed. The most dramatic examples of major human impacts are the increase of the "greenhouse" gases, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), in the atmosphere and the unpredicted breakdown of much of the ozone in the lower stratosphere over Antarctica during the months of September to November, caused by the emissions of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Other, more regional but ubiquitous examples include photochemical smog and acid rain. Industrial activities are not alone in causing air pollution and in changing the chemical composition of the atmosphere. Biomass burning, which takes place largely in the developing world, also contributes in major ways. In the future, climate warming due to CO2 emissions will continue to increase over present levels and pose a major problem for humankind. Current radiative forcing by "greenhouse gases" can, to a substantial degree (up to half), be dampened by increased backscattering of solar radiation, either directly by aerosol particles or indirectly through their influence on cloud albedo, or also by cloud feedbacks independent of anthropogenic aerosols. Cloud and hydrological cycle feedbacks provide major challenges. It is unlikely and undesirable that aerosol emissions will continue to increase, as greater emphasis will be placed on air quality, also in the developing world. However, due to its long atmospheric lifetime and expected growth in global emissions, CO2 will continue to accumulate, exacerbating climate warming and related problems in the future. Drastic measures are thus needed at the international level to reduce the emissions, in particular, of CO2 through energy savings, alternative energy sources, and sequestration.
