The RADS data for each mission is updated with state of the art corrections for tides, atmospheric path delay, etc. Because they are all computed consistently between the various missions, this avoids the possibility of introducing biases and drifts because of the different implementation of the various corrections by different agencies. The goals of RADS are to provide a homogenous dataset of sea level anomalies, wave heights, and wind speeds, along with database selection and analysis tools.\n\ncdm_data_type = Grid\nVARIABLES (all of which use the dimensions [time][latitude][longitude]):\nsla (Sea Level Anomalies, m)\nugos (Absolute Geostrophic Velocity: Zonal Component, m s-1)\nvgos (Absolute Geostrophic Velocity: Meridian Component, m s-1)\n (external link) NOAA/NESDIS Center for Satellite Applications and Research nesdisSSH1day
