Topex/Poseidon: A United States/France mission. Oceanography from space: The oceans and climate. By. Abstract. The TOPEX/POSEIDON space mission, sponsored by NASA and France's space agency, the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), will give new observations of the Earth from space to gain a quantitative understanding of the role of.

While a 3-year prime mission was planned, with a 5-year store of expendables, TOPEX/Poseidon delivered an astonishing 13+ years of data from orbit. The mission ended in January In those 13 years, it: Measured sea levels with unprecedented accuracy to better than 5 cm; Continuously observed global ocean topography. TOPEX/Poseidon (or simply T/P) is a cooperative Earth observation mission of the USA and France (NASA/JPL and CNES as partners) with the overall objective to provide high-accuracy global sea level (ocean height) measurements in coordinates relative to the center of the Earth.

TOPEX/Poseidon (or simply T/P) is a cooperative Earth observation mission of the USA and France (NASA/JPL and CNES as partners) with the overall objective to provide high-accuracy global sea level (ocean height) measurements in coordinates relative to the center of the Earth. Another of the mission’s major accomplishments was the development of the most accurate global ocean tide models ever produced. Furthermore, TOPEX/Poseidon was the first mission to demonstrate that the Global Positioning System Payload (GPS) could be used to determine a spacecraft’s exact location and track it in orbit.
