Jason-3 will add to record of the sea's rise and fall
Description: Jason-3 is currently scheduled to launch on July 22. It is the latest in a series of U.S.-European satellite missions that have been measuring the height of the ocean surface for 23 years. Sea level height is a critical piece of evidence about Earth's natural cycles and how humans are affecting our planet. Knowing sea level height also improves hurricane forecasts, navigation and the efficiency of fisheries and other offshore industries. [Source: NASA]
