Flood Extent And Damage Estimation in Hungary During The Floods in Spring 2006

0

Courtesy of

Following the application of Hungary for the EU Solidarity Fund following the floods in April 2006, an analysis was carried out on flood extent and the land use in the flooded areas. This analysis has been done with available methods and data and includes:

• MODIS-Terra satellite data
• SRTM elevation data (corrected at JRC, 1m intervals)
• CORINE 2000 land cover data
• The JRC population density grid of Europe
• TELEATLAS database including roads and railways

Chapter 1 gives an overview of measured river discharge and water levels by the Hungarian water authorities.
Chapter 2 presents the flood extent assessment as derived from MODIS-Terra imagery
Chapter 3 describes the assessment of water depth in the flooded areas using SRTM data
Chapter 4 describes the analysis of land use in the flooded areas and a coarse damage assessment
Chapter 5 discusses the inaccuracies contained in the products. Given the use of the above mentioned data, the accuracy issues discussed in Chapter 5 need to be taken into account.
Chapter 6 presents how results and estimates could be improved and discusses possible new products for rapid damage estimation
Conclusions are presented in Chapter 7.
