  • The Possibilities of Water Hazard Managements in Transformed Area with Open Geographical Information System (QGIS)

    The article presents the analysis of water hazard caused by ground deformations with Open Geographical Information System (QGIS). Underground mining exploitation have a direct impact on changing terrain in the research area. Its many consequences were the creation of changes in the riverbed, gravitational flow of water or reduction of water table. Those threats, which are the major problem in developed areas, were carried out with advanced spatio-temporal analysis. Determining places threatened by flooding in rivers, water reservoirs and catchment areas, it can easily locate the influence of underground mining on the surface. Such activities, especially in heavily flooded areas, can prevent many threats. Appropriate management in this type of transformed area may cause earlier detection of potential hazard and minimization. For this reason, all analysis have been carried out for KWK Morcinek coal mine located in Upper Silesian Coal Basin.

The combined data consisting of MODIS, land use and DEM are expected to play an important role in emergency response efforts for high-risk flood areas in the Cambodian floodplain.

The rice crop damage map shows areas of different levels indicated to flood duration and floodwater depth; 50% (8 days, over 1.5 m) and 100% (16 days, over 1.5 m) damage. The proposed map was validated to largely consistent (91.6%) with the government census based on field scale investigation and survey.

  • Rapid Damage Assessment of Rice Crop After Large-Scale Flood in the Cambodian Floodplain Using Temporal Spatial Data

    The objective of this study was to estimate rice crop damage over the entire Cambodia during a large flood event from July to November 2011. An integrated approach was applied to detect and monitor flood areas with flood depth and duration for near real-time rice crop damage estimation in 2011 by using MODIS time-series imagery. The combined data consists of developed MLSWI, EVI from MODIS, new FID from DEM, land use, and simplified empirical damage curves. These data are expected to play an important role in emergency response efforts and rapid risk assessment for high-risk flood areas in the Cambodian floodplain. A rice crop damage map will be generated, showing areas with different damage levels based on flood duration and floodwater depth, including 25% (8 days, below 1.5 m), 50% (8 days, over 1.5 m; 16 days, below 1.5 m), and 100% (16 days, over 1.5 m). The resulting map was validated and shows about 80% consistency with the government census based on field-scale investigation and survey.

  • Large flood mapping using syncro water index coupling with hydro data and time series modis images

    In this research, we proposed the Synchro Water Index (SWI) to detect widespread inundation extent in a transboundary river basin using the time- series Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) data, a major contributor to progress in international flood monitoring. After removing clouds using the White-object Index (WoI), the multi-temporal processing coupled with in-situ water level data was applied to the 2015 Bangladesh flood for near-real-time nationwide rapid flood monitoring. The preliminary results showed that the maximum inundation area from SWI was underestimated to be smaller than the area from the solo use of modified land surface index, or 32% (29,900 km<sup>2</sup>) of the total area of Bangladesh.

  • Estimation of flood volume in Chao Phraya River basin, Thailand, from MODIS images couppled with flood inundation level

    River inundation satellite images are restricted to make real-time flood inundation maps in many cases. However, such images have significant potential to predict the time, place and scale of a flooding event, and can be very useful in emergency response efforts. The estimation of water extent boundary and flood volume is important to determine a fundamental hazard in flood risk assessment. In this study, an attempt was made to detect surface water in a severe flood event (the 2011 Thai flood) by applying modified remote sensing indices to near-real-time MODIS images. Flood volumes were also calculated for detected flood areas by using a proposed flood inundation level (FIL) model with the Digital Elevation Model (DEM). FILs were verified through field investigation. The results show that the MODIS-FIL combined approach is feasible for automatic, instant flooding detection.

  • Disaster risk reduction using image fusion of optical and SAR data before and after tsunami

    This study applied supervised change detection to identify and estimate damaged urban surface conditions before and after a tsunami event in order to provide more accurate information for the implementation and enhancement of disaster risk reduction policies and strategies. Advanced remote sensing is crucial to support cost-effective emergency response activities for disaster risk assessment and management. This preliminary study, as an effort to propose a good case study in risk management, suggested that three main steps, i.e., filtering, fusing and classifying, should be adopted to perform change detection before and after a natural disaster. We fused very high-spatial- resolution multi-temporal optical images (0.6 m spatial resolution) and X-band SAR images (2.5 m spatial resolution). The study also revealed that the decision-level method, i.e. morphological transform, was the most promising in image fusion of filtered images to classify urban surfaces in tsunami damage assessment, compared with the pixel-level method, i.e. wavelet transform, and feature-level method, i.e. segmentation extraction. This paper reports, coupled with the results from the image fusion, that the preliminary results are good enough to obtain urban impervious surface estimation of a wide disaster risk area but not good enough to make clear amplitude images to identify individual buildings of dwelling zone. The proposed normalized change index (NCI), an important indicator for detecting changes, was found capable of providing better estimation of urban impervious surfaces, such as transport-related land (e.g., bridges and parking lots) and building roof tops in residential and industrial areas over a coastal zone in Rikuzen-takada City, devastated in the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

  • A new approach for rapid urban flood mapping using ALOS-2/PALSAR-2 in 2015 Kinu River Flood, Japan

    A near-real-time algorithm to process satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery for urban flood detection still remains a challenge. In this paper, we developed a new floodwater detection algorithm based on SAR backscattered intensity using pre- and post-flood data observed by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Advanced Land Observing Satellite-2, which provided very high-spatial-resolution L-band SAR images (PALSAR-2 SM1, 2.5 m spatial resolution) in the case of the Kinu River flood. With this algorithm, we first classified land use types in order to analyze the characterization of urban land surface backscatters. Change detection was then conducted for the pilot area using correlation coefficients based on differences in the magnitude of the backscattering intensity derived from building orientation before and right after the flood. In particular, the flooded building was more distinguishable than with a traditional detection method.

  • Detection of building loss in high resolution COSMO-SkyMed multitemporal images: Application to 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami

    Real-time disaster detection plays an important role in effective emergency response activities. The purpose of this preliminary study was to detect buildings and to establish a change-detection map of the building change between pre-and post-tsunami by using high-resolution multi-temporal optical images (0.6 m spatial resolution) and X-band SAR images (2.5 m spatial resolution). Proposed algorithm of building change detection is applied to calculation of a statistical threshold and morphological image processing based on backscattering characteristics over a coastal zone in Rikuzentakada city devastated in the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. Total number of building change was counted automatically and it was validated with the numerical comparison in multi-temporal images.
