The overall percentage of ocean missing measurements (latitude < 50 deg, bathy < -1000m) on this cycle: 5.62% (usually between 0.06% and 0.08%).

Calval output

During this cycle mispointing has reached levels that has not been observed since the pre-SHM period (September 2014).

These levels of mispointing are due to attitude deviation, and explains the higher percentage of missing measurements.

Data quality is severely impacted by these events, so that more than 40% of the data is invalid  because of mispointing. (see attached figures).

Users are advised to use data with off_nadir_angle < 0.09deg².


Xover rms =  5.29 cm (latitude < 50 deg, bathy < -1000m , low variability areas , excluding edited data)

SLA rms = 10.05 cm  


Cycle certified for distribution from CALVAL point of view, with a restriction : use data with off_nadir_angle < 0.09deg²
