Paper Abstract

The China Imaging ALTimeter (CIALT) is designed by the Center for Space Science and Applied Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is a new generation of altimeter which integrates the synthetic aperture technique and the interferometric technique into traditional altimeters. It operates in Ku-band with an incidence angle of less than 5°. These new characteristics bring us the expectative applications. The possible oceanic applications in marine geoid, ocean currents, mesoscale eddies, ocean surface winds, waves, and tides, etc. are presented.
