This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters along the Berbice river in Upper Demerara-Berbice Region of Guyana as observed from RCM-2 radar image acquired on 07 June 2021 at 22:21 UTC. Within the analyzed area of about 38,000 ha, a total of about 48 ha of lands were observed as flooded.
This is a preliminary analysis that has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
Important note: Flood analysis from radar images may underestimate the presence of standing waters in built-up areas and densely vegetated areas due to backscattering properties of the radar signal.
