Oceanographic Evaluation of Geoid Surfaces in the Western North Atlantic
An accurate gravimetric model is required for altimetric determination of surface current velocities. Three models of varying resolution and accuracy are evaluated in the western North Atlantic on the basis of oceanographic information.
