Storm Surge Network

The Storm Surge Network exists to support collaboration between researchers. Join our LinkedIn group to participate in discussions. 


Satellite data are currently being made available for the following live events, for which a storm surge is anticipated or has recently occurred:
  - Hurricane Earl (Gulf of Mexico, 4 Aug 2016):
           More information or access data.
  - NEPARTAK-16 (Yellow and South China Seas, 3 Jul 2016):
           More information or access data.

Satellite data for the storm surge community

The eSurge project aims to improve the modelling and forecasting of storm surges through the increased use of advanced satellite data, including advanced products such as scatterometry and coastal altimetry.

To achieve this, eSurge:

eSurge is being developed in close collaboration with our users. The more feedback that we get, the better that we can meet your needs.

What is a Storm Surge?

A storm surge is an unexpectedly high water level brought on by unusual atmospheric conditions. Much of the world's coastline is at risk of storm surges, which are among the most devastating of natural catastrophes. Read more.

eSurge is funded by the European Space Agency through its DUE programme. It is being undertaken by a consortium consisting of CGI (formerly Logica), NOC, DMI, CMRC and KNMI.
