The DTU17 Global Marine Gravity Field: First Validation Results

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The most recent released global marine gravity field from DTU Space takes into account the new SARAL/AltiKa geodetic mission initiated in 2016 along with new improved Arctic processing of the Cryosat-2 mission. With its 369 days repeat cycle, Cryosat-2 provides one repeat of geodetic mission data with 8 km global resolution each year since its launch in 2010. Together with the Jason-1 end-of-life geodetic mission in 2012 and 2013, we now have more than five times as many geodetic missions sea surface height observations compared with the old ERS-1 and Geosat geodetic missions.
