The European Space Agency's ERS-1 radar altimeter is the first to include separate operating modes to optimise performance over both ocean and non-ocean surfaces. As part of the ERS-1 commissioning activities, we have carried out a study of the tracking performance of this instrument over non-ocean surfaces. Statistics for land ice, sea ice, arid lands, and inland water are presented. Performance in both operating modes is shown to be better than that of previous missions.
