AbstractGeologic hazards present danger to life and property particularly because population pressures lead to increasing number of people, living in disaster prone areas. SAR techniques can provide a means to monitor and map disaster prone areas. This paper reports on the uses of images from selected SAR incidence angles to map areas of geological hazards. The SAR images were used to map areas affected by volcanoes, land degradation and coastal erosion in different terrains in tropical areas. The interpretation is aimed at providing some guidelines for using the appropriate SAR incidence angles of current and future SAR satellites for mapping areas affected by geological hazards.
