GRID TYPE cartesian
CONTENTS This product is based on the last 2 days of IGDR data available for each satellite; a merged map is generated if a minimum of 2 missions are available. Data are cross-calibrated using Jason-1 as reference mission. First, sigma0 and waves histograms are calibrated, then the Jason-1 wind algorithm is applied to crosscalibrated sigma0. The resulting map may be improved in case of additional mission availability: in that situation a new map will be provided, replacing the “old” one. Please note that a monomission product is also distributed by AVISO.
