Accuracy of altimeter data in inner and coastal seas

Abstract. We carry out an inter comparison among four different altimeters, Cryosat, Jason2, Jason3, Sentinel-3. This is done checking the altimeter data versus the same wind and wave model results of a given area, the Mediterranean Sea, for one year period. The four datasets are consistent for wind speed, but they show substantial differences for wave heights. The verification of a Sentinel-3 pass close to coast in the Northern Adriatic Sea shows irregular spiky large wave height values close to coast. The problem worsens using high frequency altimeter data.
