This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the flood affected areas in Mali & Eastern Mauritania (depicted in red). Flood water analysis was made using MODIS Terra data recorded from 12-15 September 2007. Additional pre-flood MODIS terra data from May 2007 (depicted in blue) was used in this analysis. This flood detection is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. UNOSAT is collaborating with WFP and ITHACA in support to the humanitarian operation in West Africa.
