Abstract: Rising sea levels due to global warming and climate change impact may prove a disaster for small islands. Accurate DEM can help to understand SLR (sea level rise) impact, coastal zones flooding risks assessment and hydrological attributes modeling and extraction. Currently, DEMs are available from several different sources using active and passive remote sensing systems. This research compares absolute surface heights accuracies retrieved from three independent DEMs datasets. The Shuttle Radar Topographic Miss…
