River gauging at global scale using optical and passive microwave remote sensing

Van Dijk, Albert; Brakenridge, G. Robert; Kettner, Albert J.; Beck, Hylke E.; De Groeve, Tom; Schellekens, J.


Recent discharge observations are lacking for most rivers globally. Discharge can be estimated from remotely sensed floodplain and channel inundation area, but there is currently no method that can be automatically extended to many rivers. We examined whether automated monitoring is feasible by statistically relating inundation estimates from moderate to coarse (>0.05°) resolution remote sensing to monthly station discharge records. Inundation extents were derived from optical MODIS data and...[Show more]
