Abstract: ABSTRACT: OSTM/JASON-2 is a follow-on mission continuing the TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason-1, and is designed to ensure continuity of high quality measurements for ocean science and to provide operational products for assimilation and forecasting applications. The Jason-2 satellite was launched on 20 June 2008 and reached its nominal repetitive orbit on 4 July 2008. The component data types in this ... View entire text

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: Three location systems combine to measure the satellite's (Jason-2) precise position in orbit to within one centimetre on the radial component: 1. Doppler Orbitography and Radio-positioning Integrated by Satellite (DORIS) DORIS, supplied by CNES, uses a ground network of 60 orbitography beacons around the globe, which send signals in two frequencies to a receiver on the ...
