During a Jan. 15 briefing on NASA Television, panelists discussed the science and research of the Jason-3 mission – scheduled to launch on Jan. 17 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Jason-3 is the newest in a series of satellites designed to maintain long-term satellite altimetry observations of global sea surface height. These data provide critical ocean information that forecasters need to predict devastating hurricanes and severe weather before they arrive onshore. Over the long term, Jason-3 will help us to track global sea level rise, an increasing threat to the resilience of coastal communities and to the health of our environment. The mission is a partnership between NASA, NOAA, Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales, France’s space agency, and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites.
