Metadata Updated: March 23, 2019

The absolute dynamic topography data (similar to sea level but with respect to the geoid) are on monthly 1 degree grids. These data were generated to help support the CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) portion of PCMDI (Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison). The dynamic topograhy are from sea surface height measured by several satellites, Envisat, TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and OSTM/Jason-2 and referenced to the geoid. These data were provided by AVISO (French space agency data provider), which are based on a similar dynamic topography data set they already produce( http://www.aviso.oceanobs.com/index.php?id=1271 ).
