|Title||Observing Angkorian urban landscapes with TerraSAR-X|
|Investigator||Sonnemann, Till - University of Sydney, Archaeology|
The Angkorian landscape is spotted with archaeological remains that have been investigated intensively with aerial imagery. Although overall the focus of investigation is predominantly on the temple ruins, the Khmer Empire constructed massive earthworks for water management which have been surveyed by the Sydney University Greater Angkor Project over the last 10 years. Some canal embankments have only small elevation and were detected mainly by aerial imagery and for the last years with GPR. TerraSAR-X data shall provide additional information to the so far used ground based and aerial methods to help understanding the Angkorian water management system and detect unknown features.
The funding for imagery over Angkor archaeological will be provided by the Greater Angkor Project (GAP) of the University of Sydney, data requested from Preah Khan of Kompong Svay and Koh Ker will be funded by Australian Research Council (ARC) grants gained by Mitch Hendrickson and Damian Evans.
