  Information - G9 Current state of ocean tide modelling

Event Information
Since the availability of satellite altimetry data from TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason-1 we have seen a revolution in ocean tide modeling. Nowadays all global models rely on an abundance of tidal constants collected over oceans and in particular along the ground tracks of satellite altimeters while the accuracy of most models is reduced near the coast and in polar regions. Ocean tide models are essential in space geodesy and the accuracy issue is for instance affecting background modeling efforts in the GRACE data processing, but also the interpretation of ocean tide loading at VLBI and GPS stations and gravimetry. This session welcomes contributions that deal with these issues.
