The new satellite uses the latest radar altimetry technology with the objective to provide a new overview of ocean topography and advance the long-term record of sea-surface height measurements that began in 1992.


These measurements are essential for climate science, for policy-making and, ultimately, for protecting the lives of millions at risk of sea-level rise. Read more at ESA website:
