Operational Geophysical Data Records (OGDRs)
Date/Time of Expected End: TBD
Length of Event: Any impact to products would be 30 minutes before and up to 2 hours following the maneuver.
Details/Specifics of Change:A Jason-2 maneuver is scheduled for 8-August-2018 starting at 17h24m11s Z. There will be an expected change of 12.7 m in the semi-major axis possibly resulting in large radial orbit errors in the OGDRs. This will affect the sea surface height, but not the wind and wave content in the products.
