Abstract

Coastal altimetric waveforms may be corrupted by peaks. A simple parametric model was recently introduced to model peaky altimetric waveforms. This model assumes that the received altimetric waveform is the sum of a Brown echo and a Gaussian peak. This model has provided interesting results for symmetric peaks affecting altimetric signals. However, it is not appropriate for altimetric signals corrupted by asymmetric peaks. This paper introduces a Brown with asymmetric Gaussian peak model for altimetric waveforms. The parameters of this model are estimated by a maximum likelihood estimator. The performance of the proposed model and the resulting estimation strategy is evaluated via simulations conducted on synthetic and real data.
