Category-1 proposals to ESA The Supersites scientific advisory committee has submitted a coordinated sequence of four Category-1 proposals to the European Space Agency. The submitted proposals are:
  1. Global earthquake cycle studies using the ERS1,2 and Envisat SAR data archives.
  2. Global volcano studies using the ERS1,2 and Envisat SAR data archives.
  3. Changes of the Earth's climate from 20 years of ERS1,2 and Envisat SAR data.
  4. Orbital and atmospheric noise in InSAR data inferred from the global ERS1,2 and Envisat SAR data archives.
