attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Derived from multiple satellite altimeters, this dataset provides gridded sea surface height anomalies (SSHA) above mean sea level on a 1/6th-degree (~18.5-km) grid every 5 days. It contains interim heights with a delay of 2 weeks. Alternatively, there is a more accurate dataset available with a delay of about 3 months (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/SLREF-CDRV1). These gridded data are derived from the SSHA data of TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, Jason-2, and Jason-3 plus ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat, SARAL-AltiKa, and/or CRyosat-2, depending on the date, from the Level 2 swath data accessed from the Radar Altimeter Database System (RADS). Gridding is accomplished via kriging, which gives the best linear prediction based upon prior knowledge of covariance. Through the Making Earth Science Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program, NASA is continuing its commitment to expand our understanding of the Earth system using consistent records. Emphasis is placed on linking together multiple satellites into a constellation, developing the means of utilizing a multitude of data sources to form a coherent time series, and facilitating the use of extensive data in the development of comprehensive Earth system models.
