Satellite data for the storm surge community
eSurge leaves a strong legacy of data, services and networks that future storm surge projects can build upon. In particular:
- We encourage ongoing participation in the Storm Surge Network, a collaboration between researchers in the field.
- eSurge data is now available for selected events through the GDACS service provided by the EC's Joint Research Council.
- The coastal altimetry community is taking forward some of the work done in eSurge, in particular on the ALES retracker.
- The work done by DMI on assimilation of altimetry into surge models has been published in Journal of Geophysical Research (doi/10.1002/2015JC011070))
eSurge is funded by the European Space Agency through its Data User Element (DUE) programme.
Case Study: Venice
Case study: Altimetry Assimilation in the Baltic Sea
Using coastal altimetry data from eSurge, DMI have developed a new method of blending altimetry and tide gauges. Read more.
Case Study: Using altimetry as virtual tide gauges
Coastal altimetry has a natural application to storm surges and has been an important part of eSurge. Read more.
