15.03.2010 Maintenance of Cnes information system building on March 17, 2010

There will be a maintenance of Cnes information system building on 2010 March 17 (max time: 03:00 - 14:30 UT)  with a network switch on backup lines planned from 2010 March 16 (15:00 UT) to March 17 (14:30 UT).

We try to minimize the possible disruption that could be caused, but you might notice some delay on products and data delivery during this period.

11.03.2010 [IGDR] Jason-2 reprocessed IGDR available

The Jason-2 products (O/IGDRs) have been affected by the recent upgrade of the ECMWF model to higher resolution (see previous news). Corrections have been implemented to solve the problem and all affected IGDR products have been reprocessed for the period 26 January to 17 February 2010 (from Cycle 57 - pass 197 to Cycle 60 - pass 18).

Reprocessed IGDR are available on this website on through the (I)GDR page or directly via FTP (ftp://avisoftp.cnes.fr/AVISO/pub/jason-2/igdr/).

Reprocessing of IGDR products for Jason-1 and Envisat is on-going.[Leer más]


04.02.2010 Impacts on O-F/GDR and IGDR products due to changes in ECMWF model

Dear AVISO products users,

As you probably know, we use ECMWF atmospheric model pressure grids to derive dry troposphere and inverse barometer corrections for sea surface height measurements. Last week, on 26-Jan-2010, the ECMWF model was upgraded to a higher spatial resolution: www.ecmwf.int/publications/cms/get/ecmwfnews/251

We have since identified an impact on the O-F/GDR and IGDR products, due to interpolation of the new higher resolution surface pressure grid onto the lower resolution grid that is still being used operationally. This anomaly has impacts on Jason-1, Jason-2 and ENVISAT products.

The affected period for those missions are: 

For ENVISAT, FGDR and IGDR products have been affected by the ECMWF model resolution change from cycle 86 (pass 404) up to cycle 86 (pass 613).For Jason-1, OGDR and IGDR products have been affected by the ECMWF model resolution change from cycle 297 (pass 70) up to cycle298 (pass 3)For Jason-2, OGDR and IGDR products have been affected by the ECMWF model resolution change from cycle 57 (pass 197) up to cycle 58 (pass 130).

The largest impact is seen in the inverse barometer correction, which has static variations of up to 2 cm amplitude at a wavelength of ~ 50 km. This effect is most noticeable in regions within 200 km of the coast, but is not negligible outside those regions. The anomalous short-wavelength variations can be detected comparing IB values before and after the model evolution. The dry tropospheric correction is affected as well (~4 times smaller amplitude), but not the wet tropospheric correction.

The solution is to retain all the model's spectral information when interpolating from the high-resolution to low-resolution grids, which is an option when creating the operational grids. This change was implemented on 02-Feb-2010.

A smaller issue remains that the interpolation of the high-resolution ECMWF surface pressure grids to a lower resolution does not allow us to fully remove spectral leakage of land features onto the ocean. The remaining errors have a smaller amplitude (~20% of the short-wavelength features seen in the first figure), is also static in time, and almost exclusively affects regions within about 100 km of the coast. We are working on solving the remaining issue as well, and will keep you updated on our progress.

The affected IGDR files will be reprocessed for all missions. All issues related to the ECMWF model resolution change will be corrected prior to GDR production for this time period.

We would like to acknowledge our gratitude to Saleh Abdalla of ECMWF for his collaboration on this issue.

We thank you in advance for your understanding while we resolve these issues.

Horizontal resolution of ECMWF model will be increased on the 26th January 2010. These meteo fields are used for altimetric corrections. Some impacts are expected.[Leer más]


25.01.2010 [Jason-1 GDR-C] Reprocessing Complete

The reprocessing for the Jason-1 GDR-C is now complete. Jason-1 GDR-C products for cycles 1-283 are now available at the Aviso and Podaac ftp sites.[Leer más]


21.01.2010 Version 3.0 of OGDR/IGDR/GDR processing software

Last week the Jason-2 OGDR near real-time processing software (TM-NRT) was upgraded to version 3.0 at both NOAA and EUMETSAT. This is a major system upgrade from the previous version (2.3), but has minimal impact on users. There are no format changes to the products. [Leer más]

09.11.2009 [Ssalto] Temporary Postponement for 10 cycles of new version C Jason-1 GDR

Reprocessing of Jason-1 GDR-C is still on going. Please note that cycles 131 to 140 have been temporarily removed from the Aviso ftp server, waiting for new products. See all the cycles currently available on ftp://avisoftp.cnes.fr/AVISO/pub/jason-1/gdr_c/ .

All the new version C Jason-1 GDR should be deliver until the end of the year.
