ATLAS/ICESat-2 L3B Monthly Gridded Dynamic Ocean Topography, Version 1
Data set id:
This data set contains monthly gridded dynamic ocean topography (DOT), derived from along-track ATLAS/ICESat-2 L3A Ocean Surface Height product (ATL12, V4). Monthly gridded sea surface height (SSH) can be calculated by adding the mean DOT and the weighted average geoid height also provided in this data set. Both single beam and all-beam gridded averages are available in this data set. Single beam averages are useful to identify biases among the beams and the all-beam averages are advised to use for physical oceanography.
