GEOS-3 ALTIMETER GEOPHYSICAL DATA RECORD 1975-1978(GEOS-3_ALT_GDR)
|1975-Apr-14 to 1978-Dec-02
|These data consist of Geos-3 altimeter measurements produced by NOAA/NODC/Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry. The dataset contains 5,006,956 altimetric sea surface heights and supporting information such as sea state, wind speed, Schwiderski ocean tide height, and Cartwright solid-tide height. Corrections for altimeter bias, wet and dry troposheric delays, and electromagnetic bias are not included. The corrections in this dataset (tides and even orbit height) are old and not very accurate. This dataset should only be used by those with an expertise in altimetry. Measurements are compressed to a rate of 1 per second using a trim mean filter. Data values are written in binary format.

Bucket/Object Prefix: Protected buckets contain the data files for a given collection. Protected simply means users must log in to Earthdata Login before gaining access to contents within that S3 Bucket. Please use the S3Credential endpoint to gain an Earthdata login token for use in S3 Access.
Public buckets, in contrast, house metadata such as checksums, imagery, and metadata files and the like. A user can access public buckets and these types of files without logging in to Earthdata Login.
Most of the time, you'll want to access the protected bucket Information
