New NASA Sea Surface Height Grids to Study the Climate

Postby podaac » Wed Jun 15, 2022 8:41 am

Gridded maps of sea surface height (SSH) have widespread use among the scientific and operational oceanography and climate science communities, including monitoring the global mean sea level. Since 2014, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has been producing SSH grids every 5 days from nadir-looking, along-track satellite radar altimetry available since 1992 (JPL MEaSUREs grids).

A new version of this gridded product is now available (v2205) and includes improvements such as the use of new versions of input data, updated corrections applied to the along-track altimeter observations as well as improvements in the gridding technique used.

The purpose of the MEaSUREs gridded SSH product is to provide a set of SSH grids, supported by NASA and using the latest corrections and most up to date altimeter products, with climate-quality accuracy from the....
