10th Coastal Altimetry Workshop


Technical issues in coastal altimetry, both for conventional and SAR modes, such as: progress on waveform modeling and retracking, Sea State Bias correction in coastal regions, improvements in other corrections, assessment of the capabilities of the latest missions (including CryoSat-2, HY-2, AltiKa, Jason-3 and Sentinel-3) in the coastal zone.

Applications of coastal altimetry data
, both for conventional and SAR modes, alone or in combination with other data and/or models. This includes the use of data from the various data providers and/or reprocessing initiatives: CTOH, PISTACH, ALES, COASTALT, REAPER, ESA Sea Level CCI, PEACHI, eSurge, SARvatore. Possible applications comprise coastal sea level variations, coastal currents, coastal wave field, storm surge research, assimilation of data in coastal models and surge models. Studies exploiting the synergies of coastal altimetry with in situ, model and other satellite data (like SAR, SST, ocean colour), as well as those looking at climate-scale variations of sea level and sea state in the coastal zone, are particularly welcome.
