Area change detection in river mouthbars at the Mekong River delta using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data

Abstract

We propose the use of SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) backscatter intensity data as a tool for monitoring coast. ALOS (Advanced Land Observing Satellite) PALSAR (Phased Array type L-band SAR) data are analyzed to investigate the temporal changes in shape and area of mouthbars in the Mekong River distributaries. River mouthbars with strong backscatter, which… (More)
