Assessing the utilization of remote sensing and GIS techniques for flood studies and land use/land cover analysis through case studies in Nigeria and the USA
Globally, there has been a rise in geologic hazards such as flooding. A rise, which has often been attributed to climate change. First world countries especially the United States of America have well-structured ground and space-based flood monitoring systems through which data are obtained to provide real-time flood prediction and warnings to stakeholders. However, developing regions of the world mostly suffer the devastating effect of flooding due to a lack of adequate flood monitoring systems to provide accurate flood warnings. Land-use changes associated with an increase in impervious surface ...
