Optimal distribution of tide gauges for calibrating multiple satellite altimetry missions
Event: 2016 Ocean Surface Topography Science Team Meeting
Session: Side meeting with European tide gauges operators - What needs in term of in situ sea level observation?: Open discussion with European tide gauges operators
Presentation type: Type Oral
Based on geometrical criteria only, the aim of this study is to evaluate the optimal distribution of tide gauges for calibrating the main satellite altimetry missions, with a particular interest in the sites that could be used for more than one mission and sites where a tide gauge and/or permanent GPS installation is needed.
