This map illustrates satellite-detected surface water extent in the central part of Bangladesh using a Sentinel-1 satellite image acquired on the 12 August 2017 with a total surface of 4,280,650 ha. In this analyzed area; 1,644,983 ha (38%) of lands are likely affected. These lands are mainly cropland irrigated and rainfed areas and estimated to 1,576,351 ha. The population exposure analysis using WorldPop data shows that ~17,000,000 people are potentially affected by floods in the analysed zone: ~8,400,000 are located in Dhaka Division and ~5,750,000 in Rajshahi Division. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
