The purpose of this activity is to look at the potential value and feasibility of developing a sensor capable of measuring surface air pressure over the ocean. One technique to be studied is that of measuring differential oxygen absorption in V-band. Other techniques may also warrant further investigation. The study shall look at the existing literature subject of determining atmospheric air pressure, establish the governing equations in error sources, determine realistic sensitivity and accuracy and assess the overall value and feasibility of such an instrument.
