Summary
Abstract: Contents: multimission gridded sea surface heights computed with respect to a
seven-year mean

Use: study of ocean variability (mesoscale circulation, seasonal variation, El
Niño...), including operational oceanography (near-real time products)

Gridded data (1/3°x1/3° on a Mercator grid), available in near-real time and in
delayed time in NetCDF format.

In delayed time, two types of products are ... View entire text

Access Constraints Access to Ssalto/Duacs products

Ssalto/Duacs products use Jason-1, Envisat, GFO, ERS-1, ERS-2 and
Topex/Poseidon data. File format is NetCDF, but the system also delivers images
in Postscript format (only for gridded products).

Ssalto/Duacs system delivers global and specific regional products; combined
datasets are also provided for high precision ... View entire text
Use Constraints When using Ssalto/Duacs data (NRT or DT-(M)SLA and (M)ADT), please cite: "The
altimeter products were produced by Ssalto/Duacs and distributed by Aviso, with
support from Cnes".
