Need to check out water levels? Just ask a satellite.

Without actually touching the water, Oceanpal, an innovative radio technology, provides effective, real-time readings of sea and lake levels using navigation signals like those from GPS or Galileo satellites. How deep must a harbour be dredged? How will today's ocean state affect small boats? How much water is behind a dam? All these questions can be answered with accurate data generated by this impressive, made-in-Europe sensing system.
