Information about mono and multi-mission processing
Transforming raw data into an easily usable form involves a great deal of data processing. From raw measurement to final user friendly product, several steps performed by expert teams are needed. Specific processing (dedicated algorithms or adapted corrections) improves the conventional satellite radar altimetry products leading to more accurate data near the coasts and inland waters.
Updates and reprocessing
Aviso have been distributing altimetry data worldwide since 1992. Since that date, satellite altimetry has evolved: new missions, upgrades, reprocessing, new standards, new processing methods, etc, allowing significant impact on the product quality.
