SRAL Level 2P Sea Level Anomaly Products NRT - Sentinel-3

Abstract:
Mono-mission product containing along-track corrected sea surface heights with respect to a mean sea surface, corrections and geophysical parameters. The last versions of altimetric standards are used and there is a homogenized format for all satellites. Product in NRT (Near-Real Time) timeliness (disseminated via EUMETCast within 4½ hours of sensing time). This product is processed by Sentinel-3 L2P/L3 Marine Altimetry Service (CNES/CLS), in the frame of a EUMETSAT contract, funded by the European Union. Corrected Sea Surface Height products from the Jason-2 and SARAL missions are also available (see Online Resources).
