How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Study region The Upper East Region, Ghana, West Africa, lies within the Volta Basin, floods annually, and contributes substantially to Ghana’s food production. Study focus We assessed precipitation (P), evapotranspiration (ET), and total water storage anomalies from GRACE (TWSA) and GLDAS-Noah (TWCA) to study the influence of the UER’s climate on...
The Global Positioning System (GPS) permanent stations at the equatorial and southern sub-tropical hydrobelts of South America undergo the highest seasonality on the Earth due to hydrological loadings. Fortunately, there are products that account for such variations, although some of them have not been properly evaluated. For instance, global solut...
This paper analyzes errors in satellite gravity and GPS/trigonometric benchmarks (BMs) in relation to defining the Ghanaian Vertical Datum (GhVD). Results indicate that synthesized gravity introduce approximately 5 mm of error to corrected heights. However, large errors in BMs render them unsuitable for applications, including properly defining the...
This study investigates the uncertainties of digital elevation models (DEMs) using the triple collocation (TC) method. DEMs from satellite missions are important for many geoscience disciplines and for economic benefits and are freely available. Validating DEMs is necessary to select an appropriate model for a given region and application. Provided...
This paper studies the effect of omission error on height system unification by analysing the contributions of the low and high spherical harmonic degree components of a local vertical datum (LVD). Previous studies have combined the satellite-only GOCE (Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer) global geopotential models (GGMs) wit...
The selection of a global geopotential model (GGM) for modeling the long-wavelength for geoid computation is imperative not only because of the plethora of GGMs available but more importantly because it influences the accuracy of a geoid model. In this study, we propose using the Gaussian averaging function for selecting an optimal GGM and degree a...
Currently, various satellite processing centers produce extensive data, with different solutions of the same field being available. For instance, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) has been monitoring terrestrial water storage (TWS) since April 2002, while the Center for Space Research (CSR), the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), th...
I would be glad if anyone could assist me know if the errors of DEMs from different satellite missions like ALOS, Aster, SRTM, etc., are correlated.
Thanks in advance
