In this paper we deal with the integrated use of time-series of SAR and MODIS images to derive the temporal behavior, the abundance and the distribution of the floating macrophytes in the Winam Gulf (Kenyan portion of the Lake Victoria). The proliferation of invasive plants and aquatic weeds is of growing concern. Starting from 1989, Lake Victoria has been interested by the highest infestation of water hyacinth with significant socio-economic impact on riparian populations. The information provided by satellite can play an important role in supporting a decision system for the management of the water resources allowing also an easy and inexpensive way of monitoring the environment response to any action that might be undertaken to contrast its degradation. This paper aims at assessing the capability of medium/high resolution (Wideregion and Stripmap) COSMO-SkyMed ScanSAR time series imagery to support/supplement optical data, frequently affected by clouds, in the knowledge of temporal macrophytes growing cycles and sustain the monitor and management of the Lake Victoria waters.
