Storm surges: a new, significant application for altimetry

The community of satellite altimetry scientists is gathering this week in Boulder, Colorado, for the 7th Coastal Altimetry Workshop.  and the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) meeting. Several presentations and posters deal with the use of altimetry in coastal regions as a support to storm surge observations and modelling; this is clearly emerging as one of the most significant applications of coastal altimetry. eSurge/eSurge-Venice are featuring with posters and talks presented by Paolo Cipollini, Kristine Madsen, Marcello Passaro, Stefano Vignudelli. See this poster for an example of how the new data are being validated against tide gauges at Venice.
