Monitoring the Temporal Evolution of the Floods in the Lower Mekong Basin using Multisatellite Observations

V. Marieu

Abstract

Surface water storage is an essential component of the hydrological cycle. Remote sensing offers valuable tools for monitoring both surface water extent from satellite images and water levels from radar altimetry. Combining both information, we were able to estimate the variations of surface water extent and storage in the Lower Mekong Basin from 2000 to 2020. Signatures of the extreme climatic events - floods from 2000 to 2002, of 2011, drought of 2015 clearly appear on both extent and storage. The mean amplitude of these variables shows a strong decrease when comparing the periods of 2000–2010 and 2011–2020. Between these two periods, a large reduction of the annual average number of days with the presence of floods can be observed in most of the Lower Mekong Basin, except around the Tonle Sap (Cambodia) and in some parts of the delta.
