This project is an application project within the Science for Society slice of the 5th Earth Observation Envelope Programme (EOEP-5) of the European Space Agency. The Coastal Erosion project shall be conceived as EO application project that aim at developing innovative EO products and methods in response to authoritative end-user requirements. The Coastal Erosion project shall prepare the ground for a long-term exploitation by large user communities, and is expected to provide substantial and concrete benefits to the targeted user communities. The source of EO data used, the novelty of the EO derived products, the innovating algorithmic approaches but also from the awareness and readiness of the user community involved. The innovative aspects of the Coastal Erosion project shall comply with the above prerequisite of the most innovative aspects of the Sentinel 1 and Sentinel 2 missions of the European Copernicus initiative combined with the ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat and SPOT archives.The scope of the Coastal Erosion project is the development and demonstration of innovative EO products that will be used by users communities responsible to monitor and control this process.Three champion user organisations that best represent the targeted user communities shall be associated or integrated into the project. Together with these end-user organizations, a set of innovative products and services shall be developed, including a scientifically sound validation, a comprehensive user assessment and a representative service roll-out analysis.While maintaining the openness of the scope and domains of innovation, the Coastal Erosion project shall develop innovative approaches that best exploit the novel observational capabilities of the Sentinel 1 constellation with S1A and S1B units currently on operation and the S2 constellation with its S2A and S2B.The Sentinel missions of the European Copernicus initiative brings new observational capabilities that werenot available beforehand and, as a consequence, offers unprecedented opportunities to address these RD priority issues. In particular the Sentinel 1 and 2 missions, used individually or jointly, significantly improve the quality and adequacy of High Resolution (HR) satellite observations in both radar and optical domains. In order to fully exploit these new capabilities, additional RD efforts are needed. The Coastal Erosion project is expected to provide the ideal platform to undertake these RD activities in close partnership with key user organizations that best represent their respective communities. nd readiness of the user community involved. The innovative aspects of the Coastal Erosion project shall comply with the above prerequisite of the most innovative aspects of theSentinel 1 and Sentinel 2 missions of the European Copernicus initiative combined with the ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat and SPOT archives.
