Abstract

Monthly maps of sea level topography of the Pacific Ocean were issued in a real-time mode starting in August 1984. The first map for June 1984 shows a positive sea level anomaly in the western Pacific to the east of the Philippines with a maximum value of +26 cm at Yap. Negative anomalies stretch along the equator from Christmas Island to Nauru and extend south to Fiji. Sea level at Easter Island is 12 cm below normal. At the Galapagos Islands and at Callao, sea level is near normal.
