Techniques of Remote Sensing and GIS for flood monitoring and damage assessment: A case study of Sindh province, Pakistan [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Remote Sensing has made substantial contribution in flood monitoring and damage assessment that leads the disaster management authorities to contribute significantly. In this paper, techniques for mapping flood extent and assessing flood damages have been developed which can be served as a guideline for Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) operations to improve the efficiency of flood disaster monitoring and management. High temporal resolution played a major role in Remote Sensing data for flood monitoring to encounter the cloud cover. In this regard, MODIS Aqua and Terra images of Sindh province in Pakistan were acquired during the flood events and used as the main input to assess the damages with the help of GIS analysis tools. The information derived was very essential and valuable for immediate response and rehabilitation.
