PhD thesis: Image de-noising techniques to improve the observability of oceanic fine-scale dynamics by the swot mission
Esporles, September 28, 2020. Laura Gómez-Navarro has defended her doctoral thesis supervised by Emmanuel Cosme from L'Institut des Géosciences de l'Environnement (IGE, Grenoble), Ananda Pascual from IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB), and Julien Le Sommer from IGE. The event took place on September 29 in Grenoble and partially hold via Zoom.
Sea Surface Height (SSH) observations describing scales in the range 10 - 100 km are crucial to better understand energy transfers across scales in the opn ocean and to quantify vertical exchanges of heat and biogeochemical tracers.
The Surface Water Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission is a new wide-swath altimetric satellite which is planned to be launched in 2022. SWOT will provide information on SSH at a kilometric resolution, but uncertainties due to various sources of errors will challenge our capacity to extract the physical signal of structures below a few tens of kilometers. Filtering SWOT noise and errors is a key step towards an optimal interpretation of the data.
