Studies of tropical ocean dynamics using the TOPEX/Poseidon altimeter-derived sea surface topographyOur primary objective is to carry out studies of tropical ocean dynamics using the TOPEX/POSEIDON altimeter-derived sea level data set in conjunction with the large in situ sea level data set available at the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Sea Level Center. These studies will be supported by an interaction with numerical model simulations of tropical ocean variability. Five specific objectives can be identified: (1) research products; (2) short-term climate variations; (3) tropical-current variations; (4) synoptic-scale variability; and (5) model simulations.
