The major objective for the River and Lake project is to convince the scientific community, particularly hydrologists, that the new River and Lake products from the radar altimetry measurements are a valuable source of data. Hydrological requirements present a challenge because the proposed products are radically different from the ground-based data, with both vertical precision and temporal sampling more limited but with a more extensive (global) spatial coverage.
A part of the project is dedicated to contacting users and the compilation of their feedback and requirements. With the help of a hydrologist team from Lancaster University, a community of River and Lake product users has been constituted. This community is encouraged to contact, at any time, the RL team to express their observations, analyses and criticisms about the RLH and RLA products. The feedback from users is very important for the RL project because it facilitates fitting the products to the needs and the wishes of the user community.
