Now that the Sentinel-6 launch is neigh, it is important to recall what is new in the Sentinel-6 products compared to Jason-3 (and other altimeters). So, this presentation will focus on answering the following questions:
• What type of products will become available?
• When will these products become available?
• How do these products compare to Jason-3’s products?
• What is new in these products?
• How can consistency between Jason-3 and Sentinel-6 products be ensured?
Attached is a graphic that shows the various products that will available by the end of the Commissioning Phase, which itself will take 12 months, during which Jason-3 and Sentinel-6 will fly in tandem, with 30 second interval.
