Altimetry has become a mature subject, in which the main objective is to exploit the now-long record for information about the ocean circulation. Nonetheless there continue to be questions about data errors that have an impact on the ability to make inferences. Here the focus is two-fold: the continued combination of altimetry with as much of the in situ and other satellite data as is feastible in the context of a least-squares fit of a general circulation model; and exploitation of the 15 years of high accuracy altimetry for improvement of an existing strawman spectral description of low-frequency ocean variability.
