This map presents a preliminary analysis of probable flood waters along the Indus River in southern Sindh province between the cities of Dadu and Hyderabad; based on post-disaster satellite data collected by the PALSAR sensor on 19 August and pre-crisis by PALSAR on 4 July 2010. Multiple sites of flooded villages/towns and likely road and bridge damages as well as evaluation of the Kotri Barrage have been made using both PALSAR data as well as crisis DMC satellite imagery recorded on 19 August 2010. Please note that detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A2 prints: 1:425,000;Projection:UTM Zone 42N - WGS-84. Map layout designed for modified A2 Printing (600mm x 297mm)
