One of the main challenges for global hydrological modelling is the limited availability of observational data for calibration and model verification. This is particularly the case for real-time applications. This problem could potentially be overcome if discharge measurements based on satellite data were sufficiently accurate to substitute for groundbased measurements. The aim of this study is to test the potentials and constraints of the remote sensing signal of the Global Flood Detection… CONTINUE READING
