International Satellite To Track Impacts Of Small Ocean Currents

The Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission will explore how the ocean absorbs atmospheric heat and carbon, moderating global temperatures and climate change.

 the ocean has absorbed more than 90% of the heat trapped by human-caused greenhouse gas emissions.

Existing satellites can’t detect smaller-scale currents and eddies

“That’s a place where we will learn a lot from having better observations of the small scales,”

“In the open ocean, the whole phenomenon of drawing down heat and carbon will affect humanity for years to come,

 how will measuring ocean height lead to better knowledge of currents and eddies

The math accounts for the force of Earth’s gravity, which pulls water from high to low, and the planet’s rotation
