Abstract

In this work, a data assimilation approach treating bathymetry as an uncertain model parameter, is introduced where direct dissipation estimates from remote sensing data are the unique data source. Two dimensional wave breaking dissipation fields are retrieved on a wave-by-wave basis with the algorithms of Daz et al. (2018), who were able to reliably estimate breaking dissipation by removing spurious signals affecting electro-optical and microwave data. After a six hour application, the system was able to retrieve improved bathymetric estimates, without any in situ depth measurement. A prominent feature of this approach is its ability to reliably capture the amplitude and position of nearshore sandbars.
