The surface transport of 'SAR detectable' features on sea is accurately estimated by couples of overlapping COSMO-SkyMed WideRegion ScanSAR images acquired with a very short time lag (below the hour). Tests performed with the two satellites constellation (4 operative by 2010) provided pairs of overlapping images with a time shift of 48 minutes and with a(More)
In the present paper, COSMO-SkyMed high-resolution data acquired on the southern Basilicata region (Italy) are used for flood hazard monitoring. We concentrate on the flood event of Nov. 2-4, 2010, for which multi-temporal SAR data were available over the Bradano River downstream area in the same acquisition geometry, which allows interferometric(More)
