Thanks to the latest developments in GNSS data processing the antenna heights aboard a ship can be determined with accuracies of up to 5 cm, also in the open ocean. These heights are a good basis to derive precise in-situ data of sea surface heights independently from satellite altimetry. However, for a reliable determination of sea surface heights, some essential hydrostatic and hydrodynamic corrections must be considered, as explained in this paper. Furthermore, an ocean wide determination of sea surface height from measurements on a container ship in the Pacific Ocean is presented. The results are compared with those from the Jason-2 altimeter.
