DescriptionThis dataset contains the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) trend generated from the Integrated Multi-Mission Ocean Altimeter Data for Climate Research ( http://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/MERGED_TP_J1_OSTM_OST_ALL_V42 ). The GMSL is a 1-dimensional time series of globally averaged Sea Surface Height Anomalies (SSHA) from TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, OSTM/Jason-2 and Jason-3. It starts in September 1992 to present, with a lag of up to 4 months. The data are reported as variations relative to a 20-year TOPEX/Jason collinear mean. Bias adjustments and cross-calibrations were applied to ensure SSHA data are consistent across the missions; Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) was also applied. However this product does not use the TOPEX internal calibration-mode range correction. This is the main difference between version 4 and version 4.2. More information on this calibration can be found at Beckley et al. 2017 DOI 10.1002/2017JC013090. These data are available in ASCII format.
