Five years of coastal sea level monitoring in the Bay of Bengal with CryoSat-2

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


A continuous monitoring of sea level is particularly necessary along the coastal zones as these areas are the most exposed to flooding and storm surges that dramatically affect local economy and society. The aim of this project is to study the annual sea level variability in the Bay of Bengal exploiting five years of CryoSat-2 data. The work is focused on the analysis of CryoSat’s performances over coastal areas with using 20Hz SAR data from SARvatore online processing toolbox. This research is also an opportunity for comparing SIRAL’s LRM and SAR modes, which have covered the same area for different time frames: LRM from 2010 to October 2012 and SAR from October 2012 to present. Finally, SARvatore is compared with independent datasets like the ESA CCI product, AVISO and RADS.
