Thanks to its any-weather and any-light operability, synthetic aperture radars (SAR) represent the best spaceborne instrumentation to monitor natural disasters. Flooding is very often accompanied by cloud coverage and optical sensors from spaceborne platforms usually fail in providing timely monitoring of the event. SAR becomes then crucial in providing information about the water depth and extension.

We have developed and tested automatic algorithms for the estimation of flooding extension and water level with Synthetic Aperture Radars, to guarantee a constant monitoring of the affected area which is fundamental for early warnings and a quick assessment of the damages.
