Sea State CCI

Sea State CCI is part of the European Space Agency's programme to deliver long-term homogeneous datasets covering many of the recognised Essential Climate Variables. The 15-member consortium for the Sea State project is led by LOPS/Ifremer, with PML involved in the Algorithm Development Team.

Our goal is to improve algorithms for the recovery of wave height information from radar altimeters. The first 3-year phase of the project started in June 2018, and will have User Consultation Meetings in Ifremer (late 2019) and PML (late 2020).
