TOPEX ALTIMETER SENSOR DATA RECORD
DOI10.5067/TPSDR-BIN0A
Short NameTOPEX_ALTSDR
DescriptionThe Sensory Data Record (SDR) is similar to the GDR product except that it also contains waveforms, which are required for retracking. This is an expert level product. If you do not need the waveforms then the GDR should suit your needs.
