This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected areas along the Mamore River, including the urban extent of Trinidad, department capital of Beni, Bolivia. Flood water analysis was conducted with a single TerraSAR-X radar scene (Strip mode 2m) recorded on 14 February 2008. Additionally, RADARSAT-1 satellite data recorded on 8 February 2008 and 5 April 2001, and Landsat ETM from 2001 was also used. Note, because of the meandering nature of the Mamore, the normal river channel identified from Landsat and Radarsat in 2001 may not match the present location, thus tending to exaggerate flood water areas within the immediate vicinity of the river channel. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Map scale for A3: 1:150,000; Projection: UTM Zone 20 South; Datum: WGS 1984
