Absolute and relative calibration of ERS-2 undertaken in the vicinity of 8 tide gauges around the UK were discussed. In relative calibration dual crossover residuals between ERS-2 and TOPEX/Poseidon were analyzed for the relative bias along with other spatial and geophysical parameters. In absolute calibration tide gauge measurements were extrapolated to the sub-satellite points using local models for ocean tides and the geoid. It was found that relative calibration provides a better estimate of the relative bias than achieved by using the global tide gauge data set.
