Satellite radar altimetry has already shown its great potential in oceanographic
research on large scale phenomena. With new technological development and new
satellite missions coming up, the application of satellite radar altimetry on
smaller scales (such as the North Sea basin) seems very promising.
This work package focuses on the use of altimetry for the determination of sea surface topography on regional scales. Satellite altimetry in principle allows the integration between tide gauge stations across continental shelf seas (e.g. the North Sea) and along the European coastline. The combination of data from different satellite missions is one of the major tasks to be done in view of analysing sea surface topography.
The initial concept for this work package was developed after discussion at the second management meeting (Delft, April 9-10, 1997). The following topics were agreed for investigation and development:
At the EOSS workshop, held at Olbia, Sardinia, in October 1999, discussions resulted in the focus of this workpackage being reviewed.
