AVISO

AVISO is an archive of Altimetry data from multiple missions including TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat, which allows a wealth of applications including ocean circulation, sea surface height mapping, ocean variability and spans domain areas from geophysics and climate modelling to the atmospheric and biological sciences.

AVISO is an archive of Altimetry data, some of which is publicly available, from multiple missions including TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat. The AVISO portal has been in service since 1992 and the data allows a wealth of applications including ocean circulation, sea surface height mapping, ocean variability and spans domain areas from geophysics and climate modelling to the atmospheric and biological sciences. AVISO is maintained by CLS who have leading expertise regarding the data stream and quality of the archive content. There is therefore the potential for a natural transfer of expertise and quality and error characterisation from AVISO to GlobWave in the future. Wave parameters provided are significant wave height obtained from the Altimeter.
