International, multi-agency satellite missions for ocean altimetry. Named for Greek mythological Jason and the Argonauts

Sea level Anomaly and Geostrophic Currents, multi-mission, global,optimal interpolation, gridded

rads_global_nrt_sla_20181014_20181015_001_120.png The NOAA Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry's (LSA) sea surface height team produces 0.25-degree longitude/latitude Level-3 sea level anomaly (SLA) daily datasets by applying optimal interpolation to along-track satellite observations over the global ocean from a constellation of radar altimeter missions. Theses grids are produced with near-real time (3-5 hour latency) data.  Geostrophic Currents are produced from the SLA and are included in the dataset.
