Ocean Surface Topography Mission (OSTM) - Jason-2 and Jason-3: Data Documentation Records (NCEI Accession 0118276)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

OSTM/JASON-2 and Jason-3 (scheduled for launch in 2015) are follow-on missions continuing the TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason-1 missions, and are 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.

These files are data documentation (metadata) files for geophysical data records (GDR) and associated ancillary and auxiliary data for the OSTM/Jason missions archived at the NODC. The metadata were most recently produced according to the International Standards Organization 19115-2 (ISO 19115-2, v. 05/2014) standard and are in .xml format. Older versions of metadata in Federal Geographic Data Committee format as well as the most current versions are included in this metadata collection, along with .pdf copies of related handbooks. Data files are available at the NODC under separate accession numbers.
