Remote sensing of hydrologic recharge in the Peace-Athabasca Delta , Canada

  title={Remote sensing of hydrologic recharge in the Peace-Athabasca Delta , Canada},
  author={Tamlin M. Pavelsky and Laurence C. Smith},
[1] Northern wetlands like Canada’s Peace-Athabasca Delta (PAD) have global environmental significance, yet fundamental processes of hydrologic recharge critical to their functionality remain poorly understood. We use in situ water level and MODIS satellite data to examine how mainstem river level fluctuations drive inundation across the delta. Temporal covariance between the two datasets allows inference of hydrologic connectivity processes, not just inundation extent. A strong contrast is… CONTINUE READING
