A corrective model for Jason-1 DORIS Doppler data related to the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) has been under development at CNES since September 2003. The frequency of the onboard DORIS Ultra-Stable Oscillators (USO) of Jason-1 are perturbed by the crossing of the SAA, where they encounter a great density of high energy protons. A model for the first DORIS USO of Jason-1, the "redundant" one, covering the period from launch in December 2001 until June 2004, was finalized in December 2004. On June 25, 2004, Jason-1 DORIS receiver was switched from its "redundant" to its "nominal" oscillator. In this presentation
we will describe the model that has been elaborated for the second DORIS USO of Jason-1 in use since June 2004 until the present day. The actions undertaken in preparation of Jason-2 on the DORIS instruments to avoid a repetition of the problems of Jason-1 will also be presented.
