UCL CPOM CryoSat2 derived Dynamic Ocean Topography 2011-2021
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01642

Summary

Abstract:
The ocean surface height is constantly varying under the effects of gravity, density and the Earth's rotation. Information on the Ocean surface elevation in polar regions is available from the CryoSat2 Radar instrument. We compare ocean surface elevation to a static geoid product (GOCO03s) to give the part of the ocean surface elevation accountable due to surface currents, the Dynamic Ocean Topography (DOT). This measurement is smoothed over 100 km and gives monthly surface currents.
