Abstract
Since 1993, when the European Space Agency (ESA) proposed the use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems reflected signals for sea mesoscale altimetry, a wide range of applications have appeared. This paper focuses on the retrieval of significant wave height (SWH) and the mean sea surface level (MSSL) from a ground-based experiment using the interference pattern technique (IPT). Two different observables on the IPT are analyzed: the oscillation frequency and the angle where coherency is lost. Th...
