Hello and welcome to our NovaSAR-1 updates. You have received this because you have had a NovaSAR-1 imaging project, are signed up to the NovaSAR-1 National Facility Datahub or have asked to be kept updated on developments with NovaSAR-1. We will not be sending these updates on a regular basis, but only when we have important news to share with you.

In our Geospatial Intelligence hosted workshops last year, many users expressed a need for data that is easier to use and compatible with other data sources, we are therefore very pleased to announce our latest news below:

This study compares flood extent as derived from C-band Sentinel-1 and S-band NovaSAR-1 for both co-polarised and cross-polarised bands.
