Since 2012, a regional product of along-track tidal harmonic constants (including the amplitude, phase lag and error estimates for a number of tidal constituents) is also routinely computed by harmonic analysis of X-TRACK SLA (using the TOPEX-Poseidon, Jason-1 and Jason-2 long time series); 23 regional datasets are also available. These different altimetry products have already been used for a wide range of regional applications.
Here, we present the latest product updates as well as preliminary results concerning the development of new research altimetry products dedicated to the coastal zone.
