  • This map illustrates satellite-detected water extent and evolution in Dhaka and Rajshahi divisions of the Central Bangladesh as imaged by the SENTINEL-1 satellite on 30 June 2016 and 24 July 2016. The analysis shows an expansion of waters of ~75% between the two dates. Heavy rains at the onset of the Monsoon season have caused flooding. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected possible flood water & saturated soil over Khartoum City in Suda nextracted from SPOT-7 imagery on 15 August 2016 in Khartoum State. UNOSAT analysis shows, an expansion of possible flood water and saturated soil over areas particulary located on right bank of the Blue Nile and White Nile, without causing floods inside build up areas. Detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite detected waters over the central part of Kassala state in Sudan extracted from Landsat-8 imagery (30m) acquired 05 June 2016 (Pre-event) and 08 August 2016 (Post-event). Since late June, it has been observed that the water expansion are predominantly located in areas along the Gash river banks. Additionally, the analysis carried out by UNITAR-UNOSAT also shows that most of the water expansion is around agricultural and vegetated areas.This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected waters and probable flood waters in the Chennai area of the Tamil Nadu State in India. Using satellite imagery acquired 12 November 2015, 01 September 2015, and 14 October 2015, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified expansion of wetlands and standing waters in the area of Chennai and also some saturated soils areas which are mainly agricultural fields. Saturation in the area increased between 14 October 2015 and 12 November 2015, and the total water expansion is estimated to be about 28%. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters in the Caia, Chemba, Mopeia and Mutarara and Morrumbala Districts of Mozambique and Nsanje District of southern Malawi along the Shire River as detected by Radarsat-2 imagery acquired 04 February 2015. Between 30 January 2015 and 04 February 2015 waters receded from approximatively 11% of the surface of lands detected as flooded the 30 January 2015. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

  • Updated 10 August 2015 | Dataset date: August 11, 2014-August 11, 2014
    This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of flood affected land as detected in satellite imagery acquired by the TerraSAR-X satellite on 09 August 2014 in Khartoum State, Sudan. The area surrounding Khartoum City and Umdurman was inundated by floods caused by heavy rains. Areas to the South of Umdurman seem to have been flooded and many other areas including Umdaba and East Nile seem to be affected by varying levels of water and saturated soils. The flooded area over Khartoum city has decreased slightly since the previous analysis using an image from 8 August 2014. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks, and within built-up urban areas because of the characteristics of the satellite data used. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.

The area surrounding Khartoum City and Umdurman was inundated by floods caused by heavy rains. Areas to the South of Umdurman seem to have been flooded and many other areas including Umdaba and East Nile seem to suffer from waters and/or muds. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks, and within built-up urban areas because of the characteristics of the satellite data used.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters in the Caia, Chemba, Mopeia and Mutarara and Morrumbala Districts of Mozambique and Nsanje District of southern Malawi along the Shire River as detected by Radarsat-2 imagery acquired 30 January 2015. Between 21 January 2015 and 30 January 2015 waters receded from about 30,000 ha of lands but many areas along the Shire River remain affected. About 22 villages are located within the flooded zone as of 30 January 2015 and according to the World Population data base around 25,000 people are located within these potentially affected a rea s. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of landslide damage in the village of Ab Barek, Badakshan, Afghanistan. Following heavy rains in the region, a landslide partially buried Ab Barek on 2 May 2014. Using a satellite image acquired 5 May 2014 by the WorldView-2 satellite, UNOSAT delineated the landslide area. In addition, areas of IDPs, relief operations, and water pooling due to the landslide are indicated as of 5 May. The 5 May 2014 image was compared to an image from 7 June 2013 in an attempt to determine how many structures were buried, and a total of 87 such structures were located. However, between 7 June 2013 and the occurrence of the landslide Ab Barek had changed and grown considerably, and thus its possible additional buried structures exist which are not identified in this analysis. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected flooded areas of Khwajah Du Koh, Jawzjan Province, Afghanistan as seen on WorldView-2 satellite imagery collected 29 April 2014. Heavy rainfall occurred on 23-24 April 2014, flooding a large part of the town. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks, and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the satellite data used. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.

  • This map illustrates potenital satellite-detected inundated areas and water in and north of Sar-E Pol city, Afghanistan. UNOSAT analyzed imagery from the Pleiades satellite collected 1 May 2014 in response to heavy rainfall occurring on 23-24 April 2014. UNOSAT extracted areas of water and inundated soils to indicate likely flood affected lands. This map includes both permanent water bodies, such as streams, and potential flood waters together due to limitations in source data. It is likely that flood waters and inundation have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the satellite data used. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.

  • Este mapa representa áreas inundadas detectadas por satélite en los alrededores de la ciudad de Trinidad, en el departamento de Beni, Bolivia, usando datos de TerraSAR-X obtenidos el 13 de Febrero de 2014. Las signaturas de agua han sido detectadas principalmente en los alrededores de la ciudad, no habiéndose observado masas de agua en el interior de la misma. Es probable que la extensión de las inundaciones haya sido infra estimada a lo largo de las zonas construidas, dadas las especiales características de la imagen de satélite utilizada. Este es un análisis preliminar que aún no ha sido validado en el terreno. Por favor envien sus comentarios a UNITAR /UNOSAT.
