Performance evaluation of different satellite radar altimetry missions for monitoring inland water bodies [article]

Shirzad Roohi, Universität Stuttgart, Universität Stuttgart
2017
So far, studying water level variations of inland water bodies has been a challenge for satellite altimeters in terms of spatial and temporal resolution as well as accuracy of water level determination  ...  Because changes in the water level of lakes and rivers indicate changes in climatic parameters, such as precipitation and evaporation, it is necessary to monitor water level variation of inland water bodies  ...  This technique can increase the number of valid observations, particularly in coastal zones or over inland shallow water bodies (Anzenhofer et al., 1999) .  ...

In all cases, an excellent fit between the measured and full-waveform modelled data in terms of shape and amplitude of the waveforms can be observed, which indicates that the full-waveform inverted model  ...  Saturating the samples with distilled and saline water solutions led to a decrease of electrical resistivity in all samples, even in the case of distilled water.  ...  On the basis of three statistical error measurements, (1) RMS of travel time residuals, (2) the error in depth, and (3) the error in the epicenter coordinates, a best 1D model is selected.  ...
