that I never deal with during my undergraduate studies
and I enjoy it for most of the time.”

 Description  ……………  : .. Ecosystem Services are the processes by which the environment produces resources that we often take for granted such as
………….. .. could enable the authorities and local communities to make an early preparation for flood disaster. Remote sensing in flood forecasting is a method using satellite data to identify the risk areas and the range areas that might be affected by flood inundation.  This modern technique depends mostly on the ability of technology to give digital prediction of what might happen. While local knowledge from the local communities are the knowledge of observation, experience and wisdom of facing flood incidents, surviving the flood and learn from their past actions to always be prepared for flood when the common signs come in every pre-flood events. Integrating the information from the local knowledge and the remote sensing technique could provide a more efficient flood forecasting method for the people thus reducing casualties and damages. Types of local knowledge are identified based on areas affected by the flood from previous information about flood events. The remote sensing technique will classify areas that are prone and most probable to be flooded while the local knowledge will lend information of how the local folks predict that flood will occur. With the combine information from local knowledge and remote sensing, it can provide a good flood forecasting method. A few approaches of integration are expected to produce from this research. A map of correlation between local knowledge flood prediction and the affected area of flood or a map of attribute data for areas with flood prediction local knowledge. With the combination information of local knowledge and techniques of remote sensing for flood forecasting, it could help the authorities and the local communities to establish an evacuation plan for the community if flood occurs in their area. With this, it could decrease the number of casualties and damage.could enable the authorities and local communities to make an early preparation for flood disaster.
