Range and geophysical corrections in coastal regions: and implications for mean sea surface determination

Ole Baltazar Andersen, Remko Scharroo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

Abstract

The determination of sea surface height from the altimeter range measurement involves a number of corrections: those expressing the behavior of the radar pulse through the atmosphere, and those correcting for sea state and other geophysical signals. A number of these corrections need special attention when reaching the coast: either because the signal is much larger or the correction is less accurate in coastal regions.
