Analysis of the Kura River flooding in Azerbaijan territory in 2010 based on Hydrometeorologicall Observation and Remote Sensing

Amil Aghayev [1] , Rza Mahmudov [2]


Because of ongoing global climate change on Earth, along with other natural disasters floods widespread and frequent occurrence of this process in the Kura River basin in Azerbaijan creates great threat for the local population, agriculture and economy of the country. The core objective of the study was the analysis of the flooding in 2010 based on hydrometeorological and satellite data. Assessment of the hydrometeorological parameters that could cause flooding and tendency in comparison of the water level with perennial norm in the Kura River were conducted. Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) multispectral satellite images reflecting this event were used. The map of flooded areas was developed by the usage of different tools and modules of ArcGIS 10.2.1
