Coastal Altimetry

Coastal altimetry is a set of techniques for retreiving altimetry information close to the shore, where previous altimetry analysis gave up because of  land contamination. By designing a suitable waveform retracker, data can be recovered in the coastal strip. 

Since coastal altimetry measures total water level close to the shore, storm surges are a natural application, and coastal altimetry is a key part of eSurge. The ALES processor has been designed for the project by the team at NOC (see this poster).

For examples of coastal altimetry within eSurge, see the news stories:
