This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over Pungwe River in Sofala Province, Mozambique as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 05 and 29 January 2017. An increase of surface water extent was observed in the 29 January 2017 image compared to the 05 January 2017 image including the zones along the Pungwe river and several areas along this river were inundated. 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.
