dc.description AbstractThe ability to map open surface water is integral to many hydrologic and agricultural models, wildlife management programmes, and recreational and natural resource studies. Open surface water is generally regarded as easily detected on radar imagery. However, this view is an oversimplification. This study used X-band HH polarized airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar ( SAR) imagery to examine the potential of SAR data to map open fresh water areas extant on 1:100000 USGS topographic maps. Seven study sites in the U.S.A. with a combined area of over 68000km<sup>2</sup>were analysed. Detection accuracies and minimum size for detection varied among the seven locations. Size and shape of water bodies and radar shadow all affected detection. However, environmental modulation factors including vegetation and forest cover, moisture, and landscape composition and morphology had the greatest influence and exhibited the most complex role in explaining variability
