JPL GEOSAT Sea Level Height Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/KY35-YN58

U.S. Navy GEOSAT altimetric satellite data was used to create a Geophysical Data Record (GDR) of sea level height by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. To use these data for science required a sequence of several steps that took considerable computer time to accomplish. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory created the version of the GEOSAT data here by performing the sequence of steps for researchers.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
