Fully-focused synthetic aperture radar altimetry is a novel technique for the processing of SAR altimetry data. In this paper we evaluate the performance of the FF-SAR technique for a statistically significant amount of data, encompassing six full Sentinel-3 cycles, in a wide variety of sea state conditions and compare it to the currently available delay/Doppler processing.
