Applications of remote sensing technology for monitoring and predicting water-related hazards

Water-related hazards such as floods and droughts have serious impacts on society. Their incidence has increased in recent decades, a trend set to continue with ongoing climate change. Adaptation and mitigation measures require accurate detection, monitoring, and forecasting, much of which comes from remote sensing technologies.

Remote Sensing of Water-Related Hazards takes an interdisciplinary approach, presenting recent advances in the available data, sensors, models, and indicators developed for monitoring and prediction.

Volume highlights include:
* Progress in remote sensing of precipitation, storms, and tornados
* Different techniques for flood mapping, forecasting, and early warning
* Integrated approach for predicting flood and landslide cascading hazards
* Satellite monitoring of water cycle variation, water scarcity, and drought conditions
* Multi-indicator and multi-sensor approaches for quantifying drought impacts

The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals.

About the Authors

Paul Goldberg is a geologist, Professor Emeritus at Boston University, and Affiliated Professor of Geoarchaeology and Senior Researcher in the Institute of Archaeological Science (INA) at the University of Tübingen. He has carried out geoarchaeological research ranging from Quaternary landscapes and associated archaeological sites in the Near East, California, and Texas, to cave sediments in China, South Africa, Europe, and the USA.

Richard Macphail is a Senior Research Fellow at University College London, investigating archaeological sediments, soils, and occupation deposits across Europe, especially Scandinavia and also provides some worldwide examples. He was a researcher for English Heritage for 20 years, and was Professor Invité at Université de Tours.

Chris Carey is a geoarchaeologist and archaeological scientist, and is currently a Principal Lecturer at the University of Brighton, where he is a specialist in remote sensing and mapping.

Yijie Zhuang is Associate Professor at Institute of Archaeology, University College London, who has added to numerous studies of Far Eastern sites.
