This paper provides an overview of the analysis of remotely sensed data that has been performed within the scope of a project aiming at obtaining a 40-year hindcast of wind, sea level and wave climatology for the European waters. The satellite data, including wind, wave and sea-level data, are collected for the same areas and are calibrated with available and validated measurements. It will be used to be compared with the hindcast results, so as to yield some uncertainty measures related to the data. This paper describes the type of data that will be used and presents the initial results, which concern mainly remote sensed wind data.
