The main goal of this project is to develop and produce validated geophysical data sets that describe waves at the oceans surface from ASAR instruments (Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar) and RA-2 (Radar altimeter) measurements onboard Envisat.
Enviwave promotes the use of remote sensing for operational oceanography, climatology and meteorology. Targeted achievements by the Enviwave working group include :
- developing new wind and wave products to improve the quality of ESA ASAR and RA-2 products,
- developing new assimilation techniques for operational models and for use in oceanographical climatology global studies,
- Combining remote-sensed data, in-situ measurements and model forecasts in advanced applications
