Sea levels and how they change over time have a large influence on the world climate. A new satellite launched in collaboration between the European Union and the United States in late-November will provide the necessary data to better track ocean surface heights. Then Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich is the next in a line of Earth-observing satellites that will collect the most accurate data yet on sea level and how it changes over time. This video from NASA provides a brief overview of the satellite.
