This map illustrates satellite-detected flood
waters as of 19 March 2008 over the affected areas of southern Angola.
Flooded areas have been sorted into 2 classes: Red areas represent standing
flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence; and Blue areas
represent pre-flood water levels in July-November 2007. Flood analysis
was made using ENVISAT-ASAR data (WSM) recorded on 19 March 2008 at a spatial
resolution of 150m, and MODIS recorded in November 2007 and March 2008.This
flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated
in the field.
