Summary
Abstract: GPS-based Operational Geophysical Data Record (GPS-OGDR-SSHA) for OSTM/Jason-2
--------------------------------------------------_---------------------------

Date: June 5, 2009

The OSTM/Jason-2 GPS-OGDR-SSHA product is identical to the official OGDR-SSHA
product generated and distributed by NOAA and EUMETSAT, except that it contains
two additional fields in the NetCDF file:
1) gps_alt - ... View entire text

Purpose: The Jason-2 GPS-OGDR-SSHA product is aimed towards providing near-real-time
(NRT) sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) measurements from the Jason-2
mission.
