DescriptionThis is a near real time dataset that provides a GPS based orbit and Sea Surface Height Anomalies (SSHA) from that orbit. It is similar to the Jason-3 Operation Geophysical Data Record (OGDR) that is distributed at NOAA (http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/sog/jason/), but includes the GPS orbit and SSHA as two additional variables. It has a 5 hour time lag due to the time needed to calculate the GPS orbit and SSHA. The GPS orbits have been shown to be more accurate than the DORIS orbits on a near real time scale and therefore produces a more accurate SSHA.

POSEIDON-3
SENSOR
Name: OSTM/Jason-2 RADAR alitmieter (POSEIDON-3)
Swath Width: 5.1 km
Description: The Poseidon-3 altimeter, operating at 13.575 GHz (Ku band) and 5.3 GHz (C band), is the primary sensor for the OSTM mission. The measurements made at the two frequencies are combined to obtain measurements of the altimeter range, wind speed, significant wave height, and the ionoshperic correction. The Poseidon-3 package consists of dual redundant altimeter units each of which has low mass and low power consumption.
