Multi temporal Landsat ETM+ satellite images for the period (1986 to 2009) are used to determine the boundary of Mosul Dam Lake. Digital Image processing (Enhancement, Image Fusion and classification) applied for the input data. The output images showed the values of surface area in Km2. In order to extract the level of water a digital elevation model was combined with the output images.
The (Elevation – Area – Volume) curve for Mosul Dam Lake (which depended on field measurements) used to compare the values of water level of the lake that extracted from the satellite images with digital elevation model and that one plotted on the curve. The results of this study showed an agreeable convergence between them.
