08 Oct 2007 description

This map illustrates the total August rainfall accumulation for East Africa, derived from the CMORPH precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 10km for this region, and was calculated using microwave and infrared data from geostationary satellites. It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements.

This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the flood affected area in the Upper East Region, Ghana and neighbouring regions in Togo and Burkina Faso (depicted in red). Flood water analysis was made using MODIS TERRA data recorded 12-16 September 2007. Additional pre-flood MODIS TERRA data from May 2007 (depicted in blue) was used in this analysis. The area (ha) of flood water per administrative district has been estimated for both Ghana and Togo and is presented in the associated tables in the map area.
