Abstract

The aim of this paper is to evaluate the level of flooding in proximity of sensible targets in urban areas using only one Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) image. To this purpose a two-step algorithm is here proposed: first the flooded areas are detected in the SAR image; and then the water level is retrieved by inverting scattering models developed for urban areas and now properly adapted for the case at issue. The retrieval is performed through a local approach where the a-priori knowledge of the target ground truth and two gauges in the premises is required. The approach is tested on a High Resolution (HR) TerraSAR-X image acquired during the flooding occurred in the Gloucestershire in July 2007.
