Abstract

As part of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Sea Level Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project, a number of oceanic indicators of mean sea level changes have been produced from merging satellite altimetry measurements of sea level anomalies. The oceanic indicators dataset consists of static files covering the whole altimeter period, describing the evolution of the project's monthly sea level anomaly gridded product (see separate dataset record).

The oceanic indicators that are provided are:
1) the temporal evolution of the global Mean Sea Level (MSL) DOI: 10.5270/esa-sea_level_cci-IND_MSL_MERGED-1993_2015-v_2.0-201612 ;
2) the geographic distribution of Mean Sea Level changes (MSLTR) DOI: 10.5270/esa-sea_level_cci-IND_MSLTR_MERGED-1993_2015-v_2.0-201612 ;
3) Maps of the amplitude and phase of the annual cycle (MSLAMPH) DOI: 10.5270/esa-sea_level_cci-IND_MSLAMPH_MERGED-1993_2015-v_2.0-201612.
