© 2022 Elsevier B.V.Satellite images, which are effectively used to monitor changes in water areas, water management and planning, and to determine the measures to be taken against possible natural disasters, provide data with high temporal and spatial resolution. This study represents the monitoring of temporal surface water dynamics and estimating the volume fluctuations by combining the in-situ data with remotely sensed area data for Kemer Dam, containing the Arapapıştı Canyon (Turkey). Also, it demonstrates the production of the underwater topography in the water reservoir areas of absent or difficult to obtain bottom topography by integrating the in-situ water level and the PlanetScope Remote Sensing data in GIS environment. The temporal changes of dynamic volume of the reservoir above the lowest water level were estimated by the Hypsometric Relationship equation, Pyramidal Frustum Model and TIN-based Calculation method and their accuracy were evaluated using in-situ data. The simplicity and ease of application of the Pyramidal Frustum method, as well as its relatively low RMSE and Standard Error Rate of the Regression (SER) values, compared to other methods in this study, increase its usability in such studies. PlanetScope Imagery will make an important contribution to hydrological studies by producing daily images in high-resolution. Mission characteristics of satellite images (e.g. spatial, temporal and spectral resolution and, geometric accuracy), data sparseness, concurrency in parameters, chosen volume calculation method and linearity of hypsometry are important components that affect the performance of the Volume Fluctuation Monitoring studies using satellite images.
