Sentinel-3 Hydrologic Altimetry Processor prototypE (SHAPE)

ALONG-TRACK (FR)

Summary

The SHAPE project is funded by ESA through the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element to prepare the exploitation of Sentinel-3 data over the inland water domain (water heights and discharge). Objectives are to: 1) Design and assess the impact of alternative and innovative techniques not implemented in the Sentinel-3 ground segment (no Inland Water dedicated processing); 2) Transpose results obtained by using Cryosat-2 data processed according to the Sentinel-3 baseline to the Sentinel-3 framework (repeat versus geodesic orbit); 3) Migrate results into an hydrological model evaluating the potential of the Sentinel-3 data to improve hydrological catchment; 4) Produce new datasets, including updated tropospheric corrections.
