Topic: Jason-3 Maneuver
Date/Time Issued: September 21, 2023 1448Z
Product(s) or Data Impacted: Jason-3 Operational Geophysical Data Records (OGDRs)
Date/Time of Initial Impact: September 26, 2023 2156Z
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-3 maneuver is scheduled for 26-September-2023 starting at 21:56:19 Z . There will be an expected increase of 12.3m in the semi-major axis possibly resulting in large radial orbit errors in the OGDRs. Over any ocean points, this will affect the sea surface height, but not the wind and wave content in the products.
