Missions: GRACE, GRACE-FO, OSTM/Jason-2, Jason-3, SWOT, AquariusThis poster highlights the JPL missions that provide important inputs to research in sea level rise and variability -- key measures of ocean circulation and global climate change. JPL satellites provide measurements of sea surface height, glacier and ice sheet melting, and the transfer of water between the ocean and land. Upcoming missions will sustain these data records, allowing JPL to continue its crucial role in monitoring global sea level and providing valuable benchmarks for evaluating climate models used for projecting sea level rise.
