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 products such as scatterometry and coastal altimetry.
To do this we are building a database to bring together the available satellite and in situ data for a range of surge events. We also provide training to help make best use of these products, as well as performing our own experiments to demonstrate the usefulness of such data. Read more.
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 being developed in close collaboration with our users. The more feedback that we get, the better that we can meet your needs. To get involved join our mailing list, come and talk to us at one of the events that we will attend, join the workshops and training sessions that we organise, or contact us directly.
The eSurge Venice project has been set up to focus on the Adriatic Sea and Venice lagoon. See their website for more details.
There are no events currently scheduled, however we expect to make announcements about our training courses and second user workshop shortly.
