Mason, David C. and Horritt, Matthew S. and Speck, Rainer and Bates, Paul D. (2009) Improving flood inundation models using remotely sensed data. International Conference of Space Technology (ICST), 2009-08-24 - 2009-08-26, Thessaloniki, Griechenland.

The paper discusses the wide variety of ways in which remotely sensed data are being utilized in river flood inundation modeling. Model parameterization is being aided using airborne LiDAR data to provide topography of the floodplain for use as model bathymetry, and vegetation heights in the floodplain for use in estimating floodplain friction factors. Model calibration and validation are being aided by comparing the flood extent observed in SAR images with the extent predicted by the model. The recent extension of this to the observation of urban flooding using high resolution TerraSAR-X data is described. Possible future research directions are considered.
