|Abstract||This paper evaluates the use of multidate ERS-1 radar and multispectral optical satellite data for wetland detection and classification in the Great Lakes region. The study showed that although single
channel ERS-1 images produced poor results, the performances of multidate ERS-1 radar data were comparable with those of Landsat TM data. The cloud free capability of radar data makes it a potential alternative to the optical satellite data.
