Mekong flood pulse monitoring

Mekong flood pulse monitoring for US Geological Survey (USGS)

Using a multi-sensor-approach of MODIS TERRA, Landsat 5/7 and SPOT5, EOMAP performed a transect analysis for US Geological Survey (USGS) for five stages during the Mekong river flood pulse in 2011. Independent on ground truth data, EOMAP delivered satellite-derived turbidity, chlorophyll and organic/inorganic absorption measures in order to investigate sediment deposition patterns in the Mekong floodplain and Tonle Sap basin.
