On 24-25 October, András Zlinszky visited the ESA Coastal Altimetry Workshop in Konstanz, Germany. The meeting dealt with extension of Satellite Altimetry surveying of ocean height to the coastal and inland zone, and discussed novel processing algorithms, satellite sensors and applications. András presented Airborne Laser Scanning, a technique regularly applied for mapping land topography, as a potential new tool for high-resolution surveying of water surface height in the coastal and inland areas. The first applications from Lake Balaton prove the accuracy of this sensor system, opening...
