Validation des mesures de l’altimètre SARAL/AltiKa pour l’hydrologie continentale dans les bassins du Gange-Brahmapoutre et de l’Irrawaddy

Abstract : Radar altimetry has demonstrated strong capabilities for the monitoring of water levels of lakes, rivers and wetlands over the last 20 years. The Indo-French (ISRO/CNES) SARAL/AltiKa mission, launched in February 2013, is the first satellite radar altimetry mission to carry onboard a Ka-band sensor. We propose here to estimate the performances of this new sensor for land hydrology through comparisons with in situ gauge records of levels and discharges in the Ganges-Bramhaputra and Irrawaddy river basin using its first year of functionning. In this study, comparison against Envisat or Jason-2 altimetry mission measurements was also performed with success.
