About this book

This book is an overview of current state of the art about monitoring of inundation events through remote sensing. A complete approach to efficient and precise flood monitoring requires multiple fields of expertise, from image processing to hydrologic monitoring. This volume details the latest remote sensing techniques for flood monitoring and mapping, including use of optical data from geostationary sensors and LEO spacecraft, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data analysis, and data fusion. Detailed case studies from a variety of subject experts illustrate these tools and techniques.

Accurate monitoring of flood events is increasingly necessary to gain insight about both causes and remedies. Floods are one of the most destructive hazards to the human populations, they can occur practically everywhere on the Earth surface, and each year cause considerable harm and damage to infrastructures. The recent Flood directive in European Countries is contributing to a more quantitative approach to flood hazard and risk evaluation. 

About the authors

Alberto Refice is a Researcher at CNR-ISSIA (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche - Istituto di Studi sui Sistemi Intelligenti per l'Automazione), in Bari, Italy.
His main interests concern advanced processing techniques for remotely sensed data, especially from synthetic aperture radar (SAR). He is involved in several activities and projects on remote sensing data analysis, funded by national and international entities, mainly focused on applications involving monitoring of environmental hazards, geo-hydrological processes, and landscape evolution.
Annarita D’Addabbo is a Researcher at CNR-ISSIA (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche - Istituto di Studi sui Sistemi Intelligenti per l'Automazione), in Bari, Italy.Her research activity is focused on the theoretical and experimental analysis of different classification methodologies, statistical models and machine learning techniques, applied to land cover change detection problems and to the monitoring of natural hazards from remote sensing data. She is involved in national and international projects concerning the development of automatic tools devoted to environmental hazard detection and mapping, including landslides and flood.

Domenico Capolongo is Associate Professor of Physical Geography and Geomorphology at the Earth and Environmental Science department University of Bari, Italy. His studies concern the processes responsible for shaping the Mediterranean landscapes. In particular, he focuses on the spatial and temporal distributions of geomorphological processes at different scales in a high-rate evolving environment. He is involved in development and application of  remote sensing and computer simulation techniques, as tools for qualitative and quantitative insight into geomorphological systems and landscape dynamics. Dr. Capolongo is a Member of the Italian Association of Geomorphology (AIGEO).
