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. This paper aims at developing synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image analysis methods that go beyond flood extent mapping to assess the potential of… CONTINUE READING
