Abstract

This paper provides examples of utilization of space radar (SLRARS) data for natural and anthropogenic disasters prevention. Ukrainian scientists have a good expertise in using low-cost, high-performance spaceborne and airborne side-looking radars (SLRARS). These instruments help to keep ­tracking different natural and technogenic catastrophes and evaluate the most essential parameters characterizing these phenomena and events.
