Description

Earth Observation for Flood Application: Progress and Perspective dives deep in various types of hydro-met hazards through mapping, modeling and forecasting. With recent floods around the world becoming ever more devastating, this book focuses on describing the newest remote sensing approaches to collect earth observation data and then analyze the damage cost and flood risk. Beginning with the chapter of flood process and hazards measuring, this interdisciplinary reference includes four sections containing each a separate but complementary topic area under floods. Each chapter also supported by extensive case studies and illustrative graphics. So, Earth Observation for Flood Application: Progress and Perspective is a valuable resource for university lecturers, teacher and working professionals in earth observation industry.

Key Features

  • Describes latest methods to global flood hazard mapping, modeling and forecasting
  • Discusses the use of remote sensing for each type of hydro-met hazards
  • Includes extensive case studies and figures to enhance key concepts
  • Brings the latest scientific advances and perspectives from experts around the world
