MEaSUREs Gridded Sea Surface Height Anomalies Version 2205

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This dataset provides gridded Sea Surface Height Anomalies (SSHA) above a mean sea surface, on a 1/6th degree grid every 5 days. It contains the fully corrected heights, with a delay of up to 3 months. The gridded data are derived from the along-track SSHA data of TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, Jason-2, Jason-3 and Jason-CS (Sentinel-6) as reference data from the level 2 along-track data found at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/MERGED_TP_J1_OSTM_OST_CYCLES_V51, plus ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat, SARAL-AltiKa, CryoSat-2, Sentinel-3A, Sentinel-3B, depending on the date, from the RADS database. The date given in the grid files is the center of the 5-day window. The grids were produced from altimeter data using Kriging interpolation, which gives best linear prediction based upon prior knowledge of covariance.
