Abstract

In altimetric measurements we observe the height of a satellite on the actual sea surface ( Hobs ). This quantity (see Fig. 1) can be modelled as:
$${H_{obs}} = h - N - \zeta + v$$
(1)
where h is the satellite’s height referred to the ellipsoid, N is the geoid, ζ the sea surface topography, splitted into stationary component ( ζo ) and time dependent component ( ζ ) and v is the noise.
