This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of probable oil spill in Sundarban Mangroves, Khulna, Bangladesh, as extracted from Radarsat-2 SAR imagery acquired 17 December 2014. Areas of probable detected oil are found downstream of the tanker location along the Sela River. The exact boundaries of detected oil are uncertain due to their similarity in radar imagery to calm waters, surface level organic and vegetation films, and other features. In addition, highly vegetated areas can of course mask oil spill areas in radar imagery. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.
