Advances in future ocean satellite altimetry missions are needed to meet oceanographic and hydrological objectives. These needs include accurately determining the sea surface height (SSH) on spatial scales of 10 km and larger, as well as monitoring the height of the world's inland bodies of water and the flow rate of rivers. The Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission was recommended by the National Research Council's Earth Science Decadal Survey and selected by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as an accelerated Tier-2 mission to address these needs.
