  1. Jason-1 clocks up 10 years of climate observations

    Publishing date:

    December 7, 2011

    The Jason-1 ocean-observing satellite has been in orbit for 10 years. In that time, it has helped to build up a 20-year time series of continuous sea-surface measurements to enhance our understanding of climate change.

    Depuis le début des années 90, les satellites altimétriques de très haute précision Topex/Poseidon (1993-2006), Jason-1 (2001) et Jason-2 (2008) mesurent, avec une précision remarquable, l’élévation actuelle du niveau de la mer qui se poursuit inexorablement au rythme de 3,5 millimètres par an en moyenne.

  3. Surveying Earth’s oceans: Jason-1 and Jason-2 join forces

    Publishing date:

    February 24, 2009

    After a 6-month cross-calibration phase, Jason-2 has been moved into the orbit of its predecessor Jason-1. The 2 ocean-observing satellites will now fly in tandem on parallel ground tracks until Jason-1 reaches the end of its mission life, thereby doubling ocean data coverage.
