Water monitoring with Very High Resolution satellite imagery

The water volume on Earth’s surface constantly varies with precipitation: an excess of water might lead to flooding, while its absence indicates upcoming droughts. We cannot afford in-situ monitoring devices on all rivers and streams worldwide, and free satellite imagery lacks the spatial and temporal resolution for continuous monitoring. This talk will provide several examples of water monitoring using PlanetScope daily imagery. The global daily coverage of Planet’s data presents new opportunities for developing robust models of flood hazard, providing timely mapping in support of relief operations, and applying near real time predictive models for river flow estimation based on simultaneous measurements over entire river basins.
