Description: The project aims to maximise exploitation of SAR and SARin altimeter measurements in the coastal zone and inland waters, by evaluating and implementing new approaches to process SAR and SARin data from CryoSat-2, and SAR altimeter data from Sentinel-3A and Sentinel-3B. Along with the specific objectives for each of the Coastal Zone and Inland Water domains (and particular Technical Challenges to be addressed) the main target is to link together and better understand the interactions processes between river discharge and coastal sea level and assess the global products generated in terms of their scientific impact.
