Applications of remote sensing for geohazard assessment in coastal and riverine environments

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

    Abstract

    This paper reviews various types of remote sensing that can be applied to mapping and monitoring riverine and coastal geohazards. It focuses on flooding, ground instability, erosion and sedimentation, mainly drawing on examples from the UK. Both airborne and space-borne systems are examined, with assessments of the merits, limitations and relative costs of each system. Remote sensing offers a wide range of useful techniques for mapping coastal and riverine features, particularly where there are access problems associated with sites prone to flooding or slope instability.
