Earth Observation using radar remote sensing is a valuable tool for the monitoring large scale inundation over time. This study performs a time series analysis using 18 ENVISAT/ASAR Wide Swath Mode data sets for the year 2008 and 13 TerraSAR-X Stripmap data sets for the year 2013/2014 to characterize inundation patterns in the Yellow River Delta, located in Shandong Province of China. Water surfaces are automatically derived using the software package WaMaPro, developed at the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD), of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), which allows an automatic classification using empirical thresholding. The temporal analysis allows the separation of different types of water bodies such as rivers, water storage basins, aquaculture, brine ponds, and agricultural fields based on inundation frequencies. This supports the under- standing of the water dynamics in this highly variable study region. As ENVISAT data is not available anymore since April 2012, and as access to TerraSAR-X data is limited, Sentinel-1 data of the European Space Agency, ESA, are eagerly expected for the region. The good spatial resolution between 40 up to 5 m, as well as a dense temporal coverage, which allow to generate “true” SAR time series, and will help to lift annual analyses to the next level.
