Caption: Global mean sea surface height. Map of the world, showing local mean height of the ocean surface. The colours in the image represent the variation in mean sea height; from pale green (highest) through mid green, turqoise and pale blue to dark blue (lowest). These data are laid over a topographic map of the globe, with ocean floor features shown in shaded relief. Land masses are shown in grey. The data for this image were gathered by the European ERS-1 radar mapping satellite.
