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.
