map UNOSAT

This map presents the estimated total rainfall accumulation for Zambia covering the period from 20th to 25 March 2014. This total estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 0.025 degrees for this region. 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 waters over the affected regions of Zambia as of 8 & 20 March 2009. Flooded areas have been sorted into 3 classes: Flood waters detected only on the 8th (indicating a decrease in flood waters); only on the 20th (indicating a rise in flood waters); and on both the 8th and 20th of March 2009 (indicating stable flood water levels). The rainfall estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 25km for this region.
