Hydrological models still do not adequately represent surface water storage and river discharge, which quantify among other also the contribution of the continental hydrology to sea level change. We will integrate the new generation of spaceborne satellite altimeters, which include the Delay-Doppler, the laser and the bistatic SAR altimeter techniques, in the Integrated Monitoring System (IMS). These observations are denser and more accurate than conventional altimetry and will allow a better quantification of the impact of water use and climate change.
