Abstract

River discharge, the amount of water flowing in a river, is a critical component of water resource management affecting natural habitats, agriculture, drinking water supply, and recreation. Traditional methods for estimating river discharge are expensive, expose researchers to dangerous situations, and are limited to specific locations along a river. We present a method for estimating river discharge from remotely sensed information that has proven to have the same level of accuracy as other more field intensive methods while removing the need for expensive, and potentially dangerous ground based data collection campaigns.
