Storm Surges from satellite altimetry




Greater Copenhagen area

Storm surges are amongst the deadliest natural phenomena. A large fraction of the Earth’s coastline is potentially at risk of storm surges, which can lead to extensive flooding, major damage to property and infrastructure, and in severe cases to significant loss of life. _x000D_ _x000D_ The project aims at investigating satellite data for their ability/efficiency to detect storm surges (i.e., sea surface height, wind speed and wave-heights). Methods for detecting “known” surge events over the past 20 years, can be exploited and used to teach a system to establishing a methodology for detecting surges from remote sensing data._x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ UddGeofysikogrumteknologi_x000D_ FagormJordensfysikogressourcer_x000D_ FagomrMiljøogklimaovervågning_x000D_ _x000D_ UddElektroteknologi_x000D_ FagomrSpacetechnology_x000D_ FagomrJordobservation_x000D_ Space Technology

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
