Two presentations were named Outstanding Student Papers in the Geodesy Section at the 1995 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, Calif.
Don Chambers presented “Basin-scale, Low-frequency Variability of the Dynamic Ocean Topography in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.” He is a doctoral student in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, working with Byron Tapley. He received a B.S. in aerospace engineering also from the University of Texas. His dissertation topic is measuring time-varying sea level variability with satellite altimetry. His research interests are precise satellite orbit determination and observations of the long-period, long-wavelength ocean variability from space.
