Water Level Estimation and Reduction of Hydraulic Model Calibration Uncertainties Using Satellite SAR Images of Floods

Abstract

Exploitation of river inundation satellite images, particularly for operational applications, is mostly restricted to flood extent mapping. However, there lies significant potential for improvement in a 3-D characterization of floods (i.e., flood depth maps) and an integration of the remote-sensing-derived (RSD) characteristics in hydraulic models.
