Development and application of validated geophysical ocean wave products from envisat asar and ra-2 instruments

Objective

With the launch of the ENVISAT satellite, significant improvements in measuring global ocean wave and wind climate are expected. Major improvements regarding instruments, processing, and products are achieved for both the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and the Radar Altimeter (RA) instruments compared to the previous ERS missions. The Envisage project will contribute to this by means of; performing new developments in terms of calibrated and validated geophysical products from the SAR and the RA instruments; develop the use of these products in numerical wave and weather forecasting and now casting systems; develop the use of these products in high-level ocean wave climate products. Major deliverables to the user community are dissemination of routinely updated calibration and validation data sets (range of validity, bias, RMS errors) by means of a web service.
