Play • 32 min
EUMETSAT Training Manager, Mark Higgins talks to guests Hayley Evers-King (ocean expert at EUMETSAT) and Pierre-Yves Le Traon (Scientific Director at Mercator Océan International) about the world of altimetry and the valuable data we can gather on our oceans, including a better understanding of climate change evolution and circulation of the ocean. 

We’re also celebrating 30 years of altimetry measurements from space with the anniversary of the TOPEX/Poseidon mission and the value that this – and the series of reference missions that followed – brings to society, by way of valuable ocean data that is crucial for providing ocean forecasts.
