Al4Flood: Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Near-Real Time Satellite-based Flood Response

Team:  S. Garg, M. Haghshenas Haghighi, M. Motagh
Year:  2020
Sponsors:  Helmholtz Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Unit

The main goal of this project is to improve existing satellite-based emergency mapping methods based on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data by training, testing and validating novel machine learning algorithms that incorporate information from amplitude and coherence of SAR data together with polarimetric decomposition for the semantic segmentation of water bodies in case of flood situations.
