Jason-2 Satellite Altimetry
Significant Wave Height Overlaid on Wavewatch III Wave Model

The Jason-2 satellite measures significant wave height accurate to within 4.2 centimeters. When that data is overlaid onto the Wavewatch 3 wave model, one can determine the accuracy of the wave model. The satellite may not pass over all areas for all time periods. Because we are using the quickest available Jason-2 data source, only gross error checking is performed so the altimetry data is inherently 'noisy'. All available altimetry data points are plotted and scaled using the models color scheme (in feet).
