  • Abstract
    These data are the standard error calculated from the AVISO Level 4 Absolute Dynamic Topography for Climate Model Comparison Number of Observations data set ( ftp://podaac-ftp.jpl.nasa.gov/allData/aviso/L4/abs_dynamic_topo ). This data set is not meant to be used alone, but with the absolute dynamic topography data. These data were generated to help support the CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) portion of PCMDI (Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison). The dynamic topograhy are from sea surface height measured by several satellites, Envisat, TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and OSTM/Jason-2 and referenced to the geoid. These data were provided by AVISO (French space agency data provider), which are based on a similar dynamic topography data set they already produce( http://www.aviso.oceanobs.com/index.php?id=1271 ).
