Topic: Jason-3 maneuver
December 3, 2019
Date Issued: November 26, 2019
Product(s) or Data Impacted: Jason-3
Operational Geophysical Data Records (OGDRs)
Date/Time of Expected End: TBD
Length of Event: Any impact to products would be 30 minutes before and up to 2 hours following the maneuver.
Details/Specifics of Change: A Jason-3 maneuver is scheduled for 3-December-2019 starting at 23:21:17 Z. There will be an expected change of +9.7 m in the semi-major axis possibly resulting in large radial orbit errors in the OGDRs. Over any ocean points, this will affect the sea surface height, but not the wind and wave content in the products.
