Artist view of the future Swot satellite

Swot (Surface Water Ocean Topography) is envisioned for 2020 in a joint project including Nasa, Cnes, the Canadian Space Agency and the UK Space Agency. The goal is to join both land hydrology and oceanography communities in a single satellite. The technology for Swot should be a Ka-band Radar INterferometer (KaRIN, 0.86 cm wavelength).
