RUS Copernicus at EUROGEO 2021
This RUS Copernicus demonstration is organized as a part of the EUROGEO 2021conference (22 - 23 April 2021, Madrid, Spain).
The purpose of EUROGEO 2021 is to seek to contribute to global challenges by sharing knowledge about the important UN aim – the Sustainable Development Goals.
RUS Demonstration Sessions
Exercise 1 - Deforestation mapping with Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2
Exercise 2 - Flood mapping with Sentinel-1
Amongst the different natural hazards, floods accounts for almost half of the weather-related disasters recorded during the last 20 years. Earth observation satellites can be used for flood mapping and assessment (e.g. early warning systems or post-disaster mapping). The adverse weather conditions during flooding events make Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) a suitable approach due to its independence on weather and solar illumination.
Since the launch of Sentinel-1, a European C-band SAR satellite, routine collections of large amounts of data with short revisit times are made freely available, enhancing the capabilities of flood response activities. Taking advantage of the all-weather and day-and-night sensing capabilities of SAR sensors, in this demo we will demonstrate the main SAR processing steps required to use Sentinel-1 GRD products to map the extent of a flooded area. For this, we will make use of a variety of techniques using the open source toolboxes available in the RUS Copernicus Virtual Machine.
