Sea Surface Altimetry Data Analysis¶
For this example we will use gridded sea-surface altimetry data from The Copernicus Marine Environment. This is a widely used dataset in physical oceanography and climate.
The dataset has been extracted from Copernicus and stored in google cloud storage in xarray-zarr format. It is catalogues in the Pangeo Cloud Catalog at https://catalog.pangeo.io/browse/master/ocean/sea_surface_height/
