This urban focus map illustrates satellite-detected
areas of probable flood waters and flood-affected areas within the city
of Rosso, Mauritania as based on change detection methods using Formosat-2
data acquired 16 September, and pre-crisis Spot-5 imagery acquired 10 November
2008.The primary locations of flood waters affecting the city are located
in the northern and eastern edge of the urban zone. It is likely that standing
water bodies located along narrow streets have been potentially underestimated.
This flood assessment is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been
validated in the field.
