Radar Altimetry Tutorial: Concrete Marine and Inland Water Applications using Sentinels data
During this course, which will be held during the 25 Years of Progress in RADAR Altimetry Symposium, you will get familiar with the capabilities of Open software tools developed within ESA SEOM programme on a concrete marine application and an inland water application.
A lecture will be given by experts including a theoretical part aiming to provide an overall background on radar altimetry and SAR imagery. This will then be followed by two hands-on sessions with data processing exercises based on Sentinel-1 RADAR images and Sentinel-3 RADAR altimetry data.
The first hands-on session will be about RADAR altimetry applications dedicated to ocean monitoring with Sentinel-3 data (analysis of sea level and currents) with different types of data (Level-2 and Level-3 data).
The second hands-on session
illustrates how Sentinel-1, 2 and Sentinel-3 data can be used in synergy to
accurately measure inland water levels. In the first part the you will
learn how to use the SNAP toolbox to obtain a high-resolution water mask (KML
format) from a Sentinel-1 image. In the second part a water mask will be used,
within the BRAT software, together with co-located and “codated” Sentinel-3
Level 2 data. It will serve to geo-select the Sentinel-3 records that fall over
the water body of interest. Simple BRAT "Formulas" will then make it
possible to measure the mean level of this water body.

In occasion of the 25-year anniversary of the first supply of ERS-1 and TOPEX/Poseidon data products to the Altimetric Community the European Space Agency, in collaboration with the French Space Agency, CNES, is organising an exceptional Symposium on "25 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry"
The Symposium encompassing these events will be held on 24 to 29 of September 2018, in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores Archipelago, Portugal.
