Satellite data for the storm surge community
The eSurge project was an ESA DUE project which ran from 2011 to 2015. Its aim was 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. The project's final report can be viewed here.
Although eSurge has now closed, the freely available database of past events is still available, and we continue to make live data available when a surge is forecast. We hope to be able to make an announcement regarding a permanent home for this service soon.
Documentation and training are available online to help make use of this data, and we encourage ongoing participation in the Storm Surge Network.
The legacy of eSurge lives on through improved models, training and ongoing collaborations. In particular eSurge's legacy can be seen in:

The eSurge online storm surge training course is now live.
The eSurge Venice project has been set up to focus on the Adriatic Sea and Venice lagoon. See their website for more details.
