This time series of satellite images illustrates landscape recovery in the Gaza province of Mozambique following the disastrous flooding earlier this year. The full extent of the flooding can be appreciated when comparing the image from 1st March 2000 captured at the height of the flooding, and the image from 22nd August 1999 showing drier times. More recent images from 20th May 2000 and 9th September 2000 monitor the receding flood waters and changes in the landscape as it reverts to a more typical state.
