Jason: An Ocean Odyssey DLESE Reviewed Collection
This video describes NASA's Jason mission, a joint U.S.-France oceanography mission, launched in 2001, to monitor global ocean circulation, discover the tie between the oceans and atmosphere, improve global climate predictions and monitor events such as El Nino conditions and ocean eddies. Jason-1 is a follow-on mission to NASA's TOPEX/Poseidon mission. The video was produced before launch, so descriptions are in the future tense. Length: 9:00.
