We present results from the global calibration and validation of the sea surface height and component measurements from the Topex retracked product. Our study is based on cross calibration between Topex and Jason-1 data during the tandem flying phase. Also, included in the study is the effect of significant wave height and wind speed measurements on the sea state bias contribution to the sea surface height measurements. A comparision between the differences in sea surface height of non retracked and retracked data is also done.
