Broadview Radar Altimetry Toolbox

The Broadview Radar Altimetry Tutorial and Toolbox (BRAT) is an online tutorial containing an extensive explanation on what is altimetry, the techniques used and examples of usage of altimetry data in several different fields of research. Besides the tutorial, there is a software package (the Toolbox) which allows reading, processing and visualising altimetry data from several different altimetry missions (e.g. ERS-1 and 2, TOPEX/Poseidon, Geosat Follow-on, Jason-1 and 2, Envisat, CryoSat, Sentinel-3, and more).
