Multitemporal SAR Data and 2D Hydrodynamic Model Flood Scenario Dynamics Assessment
tl;dr
The paper begins with the analysis of radar signatures of temporal series of SAR data, by exploiting the short revisit time of the images that are provided by Cosmo-SkyMed constellation of four satellites, in combination with a Digital Elevation Model for the extraction of flood extent and spatially distributed water depth in a flat area with complex topography.
