Abstract

High resolution SAR data can be a powerful support mainly in areas where the acquisition of in situ information is hampered by physical or economic obstacles. Purpose of this paper is to present an approach to exploit high resolution SAR data for monitoring the temporal evolution of reservoir characteristics in semi-ardi regions. Classical and innovative techniques are tailored on the specific climatic conditions of these regions, characterized by the alternation of a three months wet and a nine months dry seasons. Results from a case study developed in Burkina Faso show that the combined use of amplitude and phase information allows the estimation of the eroded areas and a meaningful monitoring of the reservoirs sedimentation.
