This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over Save River in Mozambique as observed from the Radarsat-2 images acquired on 22 January 2017 and 05 February 2017. A decrease of surface waters was observed in the 05 February 2017 image compared to the 22 January 2017 image along the Save river. The surface waters decrease is about 15%. It is likely that flood waters have been systematically underestimated along highly vegetated areas along main river banks and within built-up urban areas because of the special characteristics of the satellite data used. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
