Almost one year of TOPEX/Poseidon (T/P) and Jason-1 data are processed to analyze the contribution of the tandem mission to mesoscale studies. To merge T/P and Jason-1 sea level anomaly (SLA) data, the main difficulty is to estimate consistent mean profiles for the two missions. An ocean variability correction is thus applied to T/P data before computing(More)

This paper gives an overview of an empirical cross-calibration technique developed for the Surface Water Ocean Topography mission (SWOT). The method is here used to detect and to mitigate two spatially coherent errors in SWOT topography data: the baseline roll error whose signature is linear across track, and the baseline length error whose signature is(More)
The proposed surface water and ocean topography (SWOT) mission aims at observing short scale ocean topography with an unprecedented resolution and accuracy. Its main proposed sensor is a radar interferometer, so a major source of topography error is the roll angle: the relative positions of SWOT’s antennas must be known within a few micrometers.
