The European project 'Marine SAR Analysis and Interpretation System for application to the coastal zones' (MARSAIS) is aimed at developing a tool for the exploitation of Earth Observation data and a better provision of scientific results into new or existing applications. Based on integrated use of mature algorithms and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging models, the implementation of a MARSAIS prototype will concentrate predominantly on improving the exploitability of SAR data by the non-expert user. In this study we demonstrate how synergy between the SAR images and data from thermal and visible sensors facilitates and contributes to SAR image interpretation in the coastal zone and how this will be applied within the framework of MARSAIS.
