The kick-off of the "Brdging phase" activities for the SL_cci project occured on 16th of March, 2018. Objectives of these activities are mainly to continue research and development activities in order to improve the sea level content at climate scales and provide recommendations to C3S.  Read more »

SL_cci v2.0 global mean sea level corrected for Topex-A drift and with AVISO completion

SL_cci v2.0 global mean sea level corrected for Topex-A drift and with AVISO completion

25 years of Multi-mission global sea level trend from altimetry (1993-2017) based on ESA’s Climate Change Initiative Project (SL_cci) from 1993 to 2015, extended (in red) by multi-mission data processed by CNES (AVISO) until mid-2017 and further extended by Jason-3 "near real time" data up to 22 November 2017 (NB: the Topex-A drift correction has been applied on the 6 first years). The curve has been corrected for the GIA effect. The global mean sea level has increased by about 3 mm/yr on average but the black curve (a quadratic function fitted to the data) shows clear acceleration over the recent years. The objective of the ESA Sea Level Climate Change Initiative project is to provide stable, long-term satellite-based Sea Level products for climate applications.
