Summary
Abstract: This data base contains gridded sea level anomaly heights observed by
the TOPEX/POSEIDON (T/P) satellite altimeter. The sea level anomaly
is the deviation of the sea surface away from a mean surface.

The dynamic ocean topography heights are determined by applying all
media and instrument corrections (ionosphere, wet and dry troposphere,
and electromagnetic ... View entire text
