Abstract

SAR radar imagery allows spatial and temporal, regular and precise tracking of surfaces. The response of the radar signal is particularly sensitive to the topography, the roughness and the humidity of the grounds, thus making it possible to detect possible changes occurring between different acquisitions. The surface of the islands is formed especially of alluvial materials and covered by vegetation. The latter contributes greatly to the stability of the islands. The aim of this work is to show the contribution of radar imagery in the study of the dynamics of the Danube island system, Giurgiu-Călăraşi sector, in Romania. This study, based on amplitude images, showed the possibility of determining, locating, inventorying and mapping 11 islands (including 19 sub-islands). The radar images delimit perfectly the latter due to their sensitivity to roughness. Their surface is very rough and wet represented by a strong radiometry. On the other hand, the water surface is smooth thus giving values of low radiometry. The first results obtained show that over this period between 1995 and 2009, the changes are due mainly to weather conditions, precipitation and very high wind speeds. They also reveal an increase in sediment over this 14-year period.
