Title:
Lake level estimation based on CryoSat-2 SAR altimetry and multi-looked waveform classification 
Abstract:
In this study, reliable water levels for four lakes are estimated based on an innovative processing strategy using a semi-automatic CryoSat-2 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) multi-looked waveform classification. The selection of valid water returns is an essential step in inland altimetry applications. In order to identify reliable observations allowing for an accurate retracking, an unsupervised classification method for CryoSat-2 SAR multi-looked waveforms has been developed based on the k-mean...    »
