D 1.3 SAR mode for Ocean Algorithms Theoretical Basis Document

This document is the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) for the methods used to process CryoSat-2 SAR mode data for the three ocean focus areas: Open Ocean, Polar Ocean and Coastal Zone. For each section a scientific background of each algorithm is provided, together with the description of the algorithms developed within the frame of the LOTUS project.
