Use: stationary or long-term geophysical and ocean phenomenon studies.
Description: Mono altimeter satellite product, with corrections and geophysical parameters. Significant wave heights and backscatter coefficient are also provided. Note that monomission products by definition are not intercalibrated at crossover points. Thus Jason-1 and Envisat data for example may not be homogeneous at a given point, since their orbits are different. Note also that these products are not corrected from Large Wavelength Error (LWE), unlike multimission Ssalto/Duacs products.
