Hydrology and Altimetry

Altimetry can be used to obtain water level heights on sites where no data has been collected.

Efforts for obtaining reliable long-time series have been developed at CTOH for years. Among these efforts :

  • SINC retracker for rivers
  • SMASH altimetry satellite constellation for hydrology

The CTOH also processes altimeter missions specifically for hydrology and continental surfaces:
       – ERS-2 mission
