Informational CD-ROM on the Earth's Oceans

Perspectives on
an Ocean Planet
contains educational as well as an informational presentation of the earth and it's vast oceans.

This CD-ROM provides a comprehensive look at the TOPEX/POSEIDON mission and satellite.

The TOPEX/POSEIDON mission was designed to provide information about the changing topography of the world's oceans which, in turn, helps scientists to understand the ocean's role in the global climate. The TOPEX/POSEIDON satellite was launched in August 1992 and was expected to operate through  September, 1998.   The satellite is currently in operation.  TOPEX/POSEIDON measures the global ocean topography every 10 days.

The CD-ROM contains over an hour of digital video, audio, images, and text captions which describe everything from the impetus for the mission to the science results obtained in the first three years. 

The CD-ROM is divided into the following seven sections:

  • Mission History and Background
  • Mission Description
  • Spacecraft
  • How the Measurement System Works
  • Mission Operations
  • What We've Learned
  • Science Data

The CD-ROM is designed for a general audience. It can also be used for educational purposes (the material is targeted for Grades 9 and up). The software and data on the CD-ROM are formatted such that they can be accessed by Macintosh, PC, and other systems.
