${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Validation of Jason-2 altimeter data by waveform retracking over California coastal ocean 200 m), the ocean-retracked SSHs from some of the cycles are found to be less precise when the waveforms do not conform to the Brown ocean model. We found that the retrackers developed for nonocean surfaces can improve the noisy ocean-retracked SSHs. Among the retrackers tested here, the ice retracker overall provides the most precise SSH estimates over the deep ocean in average using cycles 7–34 in the study region.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:07:18 AEDT ]]>
