UAWOS combines satellite EO data with UAS hydrometry datasets to enhance the value of satellite EO data and develop new data products from satellite EO datasets.
- Validation of inland water level services based on Copernicus and other satellite altimetry missions such as Sentinel-3, ICESat-2, SWOT, Sentinel-6, etc.
- Conversion of water surface elevation time series at virtual station into river discharge estimates. This will be achieved through one-off or time-lapse surveys of virtual stations using UAS hydrometry surveying workflows. The concept is illustrated in the above figure.
