D 1.1 SAR mode for Ocean State of the art review

The current document provides a state of the art review for the processing of SAR mode data over the ocean. The document is structured according to the different sub-themes, i.e., Open Ocean, coastal zone, and polar ocean. In addition to the processing techniques, a review of the available corrections has been carried out to identify the most relevant ancillary information in order to derive meaningful geophysical parameters for each of the different sub-themes.
