Gridded 5-day mean sea surface height anomaly and significant wave height from Jason-1 and OSTM/Jason-2 satellites (NODC Accession 0065055)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This accession contains the gridded 5-day mean sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) and Ku Band significant wave height (SWH-KU) observed from Jason-1 and OSTM/Jason-2 satellites. This dataset has been generated in near-real time during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Event in order to provide users a quick view on the sea level change and wave activity in the the Gulf of Mexico though it is under a global coverage. All of the observations within 5 days are interpolated into 0.25 longitude degree and 0.25 latitude degree uniform grid.

The OSTM/Jason-2 observations are select Interim Geophysical Data Records (IGDR) which are archived under NODC Accession 0043269 at https://accession.nodc.noaa.gov/43269. The Jason-1 satellite IGDR data are from the JPL/NASA PO.DAAC, from ftp://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/sea_surface_height/jason/igdr_ssha_netcdf/data/.

Above original data have been processed, gridded, visualized and finally converted into NetCDF format by scientists in NODC's satellite oceanography group. The data time period in this accession has been updated to August 8, 2010 in the latest version.
