SummaryRetrieving bathymetry information from space can remove the current lack of current, high resolution bathymetric charts. Further improvement of the already existing bathymetry algorithm and validation of the results are necessary for reliability of the results and their acceptance by users.

The main areas of interest are the German Bight and seas around Mauritius where data can be validated with the help of the local authorities. Further acquisitions may be necessary near coasts with unique sea state properties or for refined algorithm tuning

Research contributions are regularly presented in scientific conferences and published in relevant literature.
