Altimetry with Sentinel-3 using BRAT - Part 1
This webinar edition will be divided into two parts.
Part 1 - An introduction on radar altimetry will discuss the Low Resolution Mode (LRM) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) processing schemes in combination with the analytical and empirical retracking strategies used to produce the typical estimates included in altimetry products. In BRAT, altimetry estimates in the coastal zone will be discussed underlining the importance of correctly applying the geophysical corrections.
Part 2 - (which will be held in September) will be oriented to oceanography. The 27-days repeat cycle
of Sentinel-3 will be used to assess the impact of a typhoon event on altimetry
estimates. The possibility of generating monthly sea level anomaly (SLA) maps
with BRAT will be also discussed as well as the capability of the toolbox to
calculate geostrophic currents and the current speed.
During this webinar, you will be introduced to Sentinel-3 SRAL altimetry data and learn how to process the data using the ESA/CNES Broadview Radar Altimetry Toolbox (BRAT).
Please note the duration of this webinar is of 1 hour 30 minutes + 20 minutes for Q&A
In the recent years, the progress made in signal processing schemes brought a significant improvement in the resolution of altimetry sensors. As a result, altimeters on board missions like Sentinel-3 are capable of providing usable estimates not only in the open ocean but also in the coastal zone, over icy regions and over rivers & lakes.
