Summary
Abstract: The Dartmouth Flood Observatory produced this website as "a research tool for
detection, mapping, measurement, and analysis of extreme flood events
world-wide using satellite remote sensing." Users can learn about the
Observatory's use of microwave and optical satellite imaging to determine
flooding and extreme low flow conditions for various places throughout the
world. Students and researchers can discover how the observatory monitors
wetland hydrology for various places. Researchers can find archives of large
flooding events from 1985 to the present. The web site features a variety of
maps and satellite images of floods.
