The eSurge-Venice Project

eSurge-Venice (ESA Storm Surge for Venice) is a  project funded by the European Space Agency,  part of its Data User Element (DUE) programme. It aims to increase the usage of Earth Observation (EO) satellite data, from both ESA and other spacecraft, within the storm surge community. It runs in tight connection with the ESA DUE Storm Surge project eSurge, which is developing an open-access database (SEARS: Surge Event Analysis and Repository Service) to give users easy access to EO and other data relevant for studying storm surges. SEARS includes the data selected by the eSurge-Venice project.
