Coastal applications

  • High-resolution coastal observations

    Coastal areas are complex zones, with large variations in water levels, major economical and ecological issues. With Swot, a real continuity "from the open ocean to the beach" will be possible and this in 250-m resolution. Even higher resolution will be provided by the land-processed data 3 km from the coasts.

  • Coastal applications

    Many current studies are attempting to enhance the quality of altimetry data close to the coasts. New processing methods and applications can then be developed for littoral and shallow-water regions, some of the most fragile and important areas of the oceans.

  • Coastal zones

    New studies of region-specific coastal zones
