Quantification of surface water extent and volume in the Inner Niger Delta (IND) over 2000–2022 using multispectral imagery and radar altimetry

Abstract

Spatio-temporal dynamics of surface water reservoirs at regional and global scales remain poorly understood. Using satellite remote sensing provides a unique opportunity to address this problem. This study aims to (1) quantify the extent and volume of surface water and (2) compare our approach with other datasets. We utilized MODIS-based spectral indices to monitor temporal variations in inundation extent. By interpolating water levels across the surface water extent, we generated water level maps and quantified surface water volume from 2000 to 2022. Evaluation against ICESat-2 data involved 64 comparisons, with approximately 58% showing an R 2 value greater than or equal to 0.5, and 38% were higher than or equal to 0.7. Compared to the flooding model, our method aligns more closely with ICESat-2 data, contrary to the flooding model which tends to overestimate water levels and, consequently, water storage.
