Observations of Flooding Using Satellite Imagery

  title={Observations of Flooding Using Satellite Imagery},
  author={Gm McMahon and Lm Collins},
This paper describes the use of remote sensing techniques using satellite imagery in the measurement of floods. Conventional flood measurement strategies are largely oriented to at and below bank-full flow. The width of the floodplains for many Australian streams, and the pattern of floodplain flows, test the resources of measurement Authorities using conventional techniques. Satellite imagery affords engineers the opportunity of observing the pattern and extent of inundation on the floodplain… CONTINUE READING
