This map illustrates satellite-detected water surface in Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of The Congo as observed from Sentinel-1 imagery acquired on 18 November 2019. Within the analysed extent of about 500 km2, a total about 1 km2 of land appear to be flooded in Basse-Kotto Prefecture of Central African Republic and about 3 km2 of land appear to be flooded in Nord-Ubangi Province of Democratic Republic of The Congo. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
Important note: Flood analysis from SAR Sentinel-1 images may significantly underestimate the presence of standing waters in built up and/or densely vegetated areas due to backscattering of the radar signal.
