Synthetic Aperture Radar for Coastal Flood Mapping
Entry ID: LSU_ESL_SAR

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Hurricane-induced storm surges, waves, and rain can all contribute to
widespread coastal flooding, particularly in low relief areas such as southeast
Louisiana. The Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) on the Radarsat-1 provides the
