Short summary
Satellite altimetry provides a unique technique for observing the sea surface height (SSH) signature of internal tides from space. The advances in mapping technique, combined with the accumulation of satellite altimetry data, make it possible to construct empirical models for minor internal tide constituents. This paper demonstrates that N2 internal tides, the fifth largest tidal constituent, are observed using 100 satellite years of SSH data from 1993 to 2019 by a new mapping procedure.
