Coastal Satellite Altimetry data, including those from ESA's Envisat mission, have not been fully exploited yet, because the sea level estimation in coastal areas is considered unreliable.
Mapping the oceanic internal wave phase speed in the South China Sea by ERS-2 and Envisat SAR images

Oceanic internal waves play an important role in nutrient distribution, primary productivity, acoustic propagation, coral reef growth, and submarine navigation. It is very difficult to measure the internal wave field because it has a complex three-dimensional structure and its motion is affected both by the structure of vertical stratification and by horizontal mean currents.

Over the last year, engineers have been carefully testing and piecing together the multitude of components that make up Sentinel-3. The recent arrival of the infrared radiometer is a milestone in the exacting process of building this upcoming Copernicus mission.
16 April 2014
Launched on 3 April, ESA's Sentinel-1A satellite has already delivered its first radar images of Earth. They offer a tantalising glimpse of the kind of operational imagery that this new mission will provide for Europe's ambitious Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.
