Sentinel-1 for Science Ocean

Project References
Acronym S1OceanStudy
Full title Sentinel-1 for Science Ocean
Cost 350 k €
Action line R&D Studies for Advanced Methods
Missions Sentinel 1
Project Description
Objectives The project aims to develop synergetic wind- wave- and radial surface current retrieval from S-1 SAR data (all modes)
Abstract

The objective of this study is to develop improved L2 ocean product prototypes for Sentinel-1 mission fulfilling the requirements of the wide ocean user community. Those prototype products will aim at:

  • Taking benefit of the new capabilities of the S-1 mission acquisition modes in order to improve the surface ocean sea state measurements (wind, waves, swell, currents),
  • Implementing a synergetic ocean sea state measurement strategy in order to overcome the limitation of classical measurement approaches,
  • Providing ocean sea state measurements required by the user community (both operational community and scientific community)
