AbstractDigital elevation models (DEM) of intertidal areas are important in a number of applications (ecological modelling, geomorphodynamics, sea-level change). However, field measurements of height profiles can be difficult to collect (either on foot or using a boat) and advanced airborne methods (such as LIDAR) can be rather expensive. We evaluate the use of freely available remote sensing (RS) images (LANDSAT 5TM) to derive a DEM for intertidal areas within Cádiz Bay. Waterlines were extracted from 12 images over a period of 18 months (2009 to 2011), representing different stages of the tide (measured in Cádiz Port). These contour lines were used to construct a DEM via kriging. RS-derived topography was compared to transects of shore height measured using a dGPS. The waterline method applied to LANDSAT 5TM images offers a cheap and quick way to derive a reasonably accurate DEM within intertidal areas. The method can be semi-automated and is generally suitable for low-energy zones, where large waves are infrequent, the topography is relatively stable and not very abrupt.
