The main objective of the sea level CCI project is to produce and validate a Sea Level Essential Climate Variable (ECV) product. It represents the first phase of the ESA Climate Change Initiative program that aims at setting up in a second phase an "operational processing capacity of Earth Observation data"
The SLCCI team are continuing to be very active in their first year of this 2nd Phase of the CCI programme. One way to keep up to date with this is via the team's publications area on this website - the latest list can be found in here.
The Sea Level ECV products consist of monthly maps of sea level anomalies and associated mean sea level trends.
As part of the project's scientific activities, the Sea Level CCI project team have been able to provide the Climate Research Group with along-track altimeter measurements from several altimeter missions (TOPEX-Poseidon, ERS-1 & 2, Envisat, Jason-1 & 2) to assess the quality of the Sea Level ECV products using assimilation techniques.
