Observation of the flooding of agricultural areas by the Elbe in 2002. The damage to the farmers depends on the crop type and the duration of the flooding.
For the whole Elbe event (500 km)the maximum flood extent was derived from analyses of seven satellite images (both optical and SAR radar) and synthesised in a data set used for risk assessment by Swiss Re.
