In August 2011, China successfully launched the Ocean II (HY-2A) satellite. HY-2A carries a dual-band radar altimeter with a calibrated microwave radiometer on the orbit. The main objective of HY-2A is to observe the elements of marine dynamic environment, including sea surface height. The evaluation of HY-2A satellite sea surface data quality is a necessary part of HY-2A satellite sea surface data application. We Used the HY-2A satellite 18th to 23th cycle data and the simultaneous Jason-2 data in orbit to analyze the deviation and evaluate of HY-2A satellite radar height data quality. The results show that the number of abnormal points in HY-2A satellite 18 to 23 cycles accounted for 12% of the total. HY-2A and Jason-2 sea level anomaly standard deviation of 7.0 cm that the accuracy of HY-2A reached the satisfaction index.
