This work investigates the capabilities of spaceborne SAR to extract information on areas close to coastal locations, where the incoming wave fields show strong spatial inhomogeneities. For this purpose, ERS-2 SAR and ENVISAT ASAR images of the North Sea and the Bay of Biscay are used to study the ocean waves in shallow waters under different climate and oceanographic conditions. High resolution sea surface elevation fields are computed from complex image mode data. The spatial variation of the ocean wave fields is analyzed and related to the underlying bottom topography. In addition, the potential of ENVISAT dual polarization data for wave measurements is discussed. The relevance of the investigations for different practical applications is explained.
