Jason-CS (Sentinel-6) Icon

Jason-CS (Sentinel-6)

The Jason-CS mission (on the Sentinel-6 spacecraft) is an international partnership between NASA, NOAA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and EUMETSAT.
Jason-CS will continue the high precision ocean altimetry measurements of the Jason-series satellites into the 2020–2030 time-frame using two successive, identical satellites, Sentinel-6A and Sentinel-6B.
A secondary objective of Jason-CS is to collect high resolution vertical profiles of temperature, using the GNSS Radio-Occultation sounding technique, to assess temperature changes in the troposphere and stratosphere and to support Numerical Weather Prediction.
