This map illustrates satellite-detected surface waters along the Rupununi river in Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo Region of Guyana as observed from Sentinel-1 image acquired on 12 June 2021 at 09:45 UTC. Within the analyzed area of about 6,500 km2, a total of about 235 km2 of lands were observed as flooded and the road about 26 km are potentially affected by the floods.
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.
