Earth Observation of night time lights for flood risk management

River Nile and its Delta hosting two of the biggest cities in Egypt

Flood is one of the most common geohazards, which also costs most devastation to society. There are areas more vulnerable to floods, where measures are taken to mitigate the impacts, but further research is needed for identifying flood vulnerability in order to make communities in such vulnerable areas more resilient.
