Remote sensing Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from TerraSAR-X and Tandem-X (TS-X and TD-X) satellites have been used for validation and verification of newly developed coastal forecast models in the German Bight of the North Sea. The empirical XWAVE algorithm for estimation of significant wave height has been adopted for coastal application and(More)
The relationship between benthos data and environmental data in 308 samples collected from the intertidal zone of the Hörnum tidal basin (German Wadden Sea) was analyzed. The environmental variables were current velocity, wave action, emersion time (all of which were obtained from a 2-year simulation with a numerical model) and four sediment grain-size(More)
A method is presented to obtain underwater topography for coastal areas using state-of-the-art remote sensing data and techniques worldwide. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from the new German satellite TerraSAR-X with high resolution up to 1m are used to render ocean waves. As in shallow areas, bathymetry is reflected by long swell wave refraction(More)
The need for widespread , up-to-date sea state observations in the emerging ice-free Arctic will further increase as the region will open up to marine operations. Here we present an example of spatial wave field parameters obtained from a TerraSAR-X StripMap swath in the southern Beaufort Sea. Significant wave heights varied from < 1m to > 2.2m over(More)
