Uncertainties in SSB modeling and impact on MSL

Sébastien Figerou, Ngan Tran, François Bignalet-Cazalet, Gerald Dibarboure & Craig Donlon
Current operational SSB corrections are derived empirically and built up as look-up tables that describe the SSB amplitude as a 2D function of the SWH and the wind speed parameters, both directly measured by altimeters. Different aspects of the empirical determination have been improved through the years: statistical methods for the SSB modeling, ways to extract the SSB signals from the SSH data, and improvement in the sea state description to better describe in-turn the...
