Remote Sensing 04.12.1998 Integrating remote sensing observations of flood hydrology and hydraulic modelling.

Intro An early study demonstrating the potential of remotely sensed satellite data to help with the parameterization and validation of computational flood models.

The further development of two-dimensional finite element models of river flood flow is currently constrained by a lack of data for rigorous parameterization and validation. Remote sensing techniques have the potential to overcome a number of these constraints thereby allowing a research design for model development. This is illustrated with reference to a case study of a two-dimensional finite element model applied to the Missouri River, Nebraska and compared with a synchronous Landsat TM image of flood inundation extent. The case study allows research needs for the integration of hydraulic modelling and remote sensing to be defined.
