Reconstructed Sea Surface Height from altimetry and tide gages: 1950-2009

Monday, October 8, 2012

This animation illustrates sea surface height anomalies (SSHA) from 1950 to 2009. The pre TOPEX/Poseidon (1992) SSHA data are derived from a cyclo-stationary EOF tuned to the AVISO SSHA and then applied to tide gauge data.
