Description application of remote sensing to flood inundation PDF

Long-term serial water change analysis and floods monitoring are currently research hotspots of remote sensing hydrology. However, these studies are also faced with some problems, such as coarse temporal or spatial resolution of some remote sensing data.

Floods are one of the most common hazards in the world, affecting people’s lives and livelihoods. Flood hazard mapping and flood shelters suitability analysis are vital elements in appropriate land use planning for flood-prone areas.

This paper describes application of Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in identifying flood hazard zones and flood shelters and are. Remote sensing technology serves as a powerful tool for analyzing geospatial characteristics of flood inundation events at various scales.

However, the performance of remote sensing methods depends heavily on the flood characteristics and landscape settings. A floodplain map has three key components: base map imagery and/or cartographic line work, an elevation application of remote sensing to flood inundation book representing the earth’s surface or “terrain,” and flood study results generated from engineering analyses.

This chapter describes remote sensing technologies that can be used to create the base map imagery and the elevation model and focuses on elevation because of its special. APPLICATION OF REMOTE SENSING IN FLOOD MANAGEMENT band 7 (– µm) has been found particularly suitable for distinguishing water or moist soil from dry surface due to strong absorption of water in the near infrared range of the spectrum (Smith, ).

From the early s, Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imageries with 30 mFile Size: KB. Advances in remote sensing technology and new satellite platforms such as ALOS (Advanced Land Observation Satellite) sensors widened the application of satellite data. One of the many fields that these technologies can be applied is to validate flood inundation models.

For a long time flood extent from floodFile Size: KB. Remote sensing can be used to assist risk reduction initiatives through identification of hazard zones associated with flood plains, coastal inundation and erosion, and active faults.

It can also be used to verify hazard models by measuring the location and magnitude of actual by: Application of Remote Sensing and GIS for Flood Hazard Management: A Case Study from Sindh Province, Pakistan flood occurred, inflicting damage nationwide in Pakistan worth about Rs.

17 billion. The catastrophic flood of surpassed all previous records with damages estimated at Rs. 50 billion. High temporal resolution played a major role in Remote Sensing data for flood monitoring to encounter the cloud cover.

In this regard, MODIS Aqua and Terra images of Sindh province in Pakistan were acquired during the flood events and used as the main input to Cited by: 2.

Flood Mapping by Passive Remote Sensing System General Passive remote sensing data have been widely used for flood mapping. Imhoff et al. () used Landsat MSS data to delineate flood boundaries by monsoon rains in Bangladesh, Islam and Sado (a, ) used NOAA AVHRR data for mapping the extent of flood and food hazard map of.

global remote sensing data (i.e. SRTM) to support flood inundation modelling. To this end, a case study of a river reach along the Mississippi was exploited. In particular, two flood inundation models were built by using the same 2D hydraulic model code (LISFLOOD -FP), but with two different topographical.

Recent flood events demonstrated a demand for satellite-based inundation mapping in near real time (NRT). Simulating and forecasting flood extent is key for risk mitigation. Numerical models are designed to provide such information but usually lack reference at fine spatiotemporal : Xinyi Shen, Emmanouil Anagnostou.
