Flood mapping, particularly hazard and risk mapping, is an imperative process and a fundamental part of emergency response and risk management. This paper aims to produce a flood risk proxy map of damaged rice fields over the whole of Bangladesh, where monsoon river floods are dominant and frequent, affecting over 80% of the total population. This proxy(More)
Real-time flood mapping with an automatic flood-detection technique is important in emergency response efforts. However, current mapping technology still has limitations in accurately expressing information on flood areas such as inundation depth and extent. For this reason, the authors attempt to improve a floodwater detection method with a simple(More)
More than 2 million hectares of the lower Mekong River flood plain (Cambodian Plain), which extends from southern Cambodia to the border with Vietnam, is cultivated with rice; and more than 60 % of the population in the flood plain are farmers involved in rice cultivation. Rice production in this area is seriously affected by floods almost every year; on(More)
The climate changes will be much more significant over the next 100 years and may lead to the heavy rainfall event. The heavy rainfall causes the flood hazard in the lowlands and geologic hazard in the mountains. Floods are also related to the changes in social economic conditions and land use. Recently, floods have been increasing due to rapid urbanization(More)
In this study, we determine the global emission concentration of methane using the scanning imaging absorption spectrometer for atmospheric chartography data. We analyzed land and sea area to investigate the 9-year changes in methane concentrations from 2003 to 2011. Moreover, by subtracting the concentration of methane from land and sea, we can found the(More)
