Abstract

The study area is a typical agricultural area with intense relief, the result of active tectonics and important human intervention. The AA. demonstrate the benefits from the synergism of SAR data (ERS-2) and optical data (SPOT2-XS) in order to highlight the possible natural-hazard-prone areas. These data give different and complementary information since the radar signal depends mostly on topography, surface roughness and soil moisture, whereas the visible/infrared channels provide spectral information mostly on vegetation and land use/cover.
