This map illustrates satellite detected flood water over the flood affected areas in northern Senegal and southern 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.
