This map illustrates satellite-detected surface water extent in the central and northern parts of Bangladesh using a Sentinel-1 satellite image acquired on the 22 August 2017. The total analysed area is about 4,284,431 ha. In this analysed area; 1,099,369 ha (39%) of lands are likely affected. These lands are mainly cropland irrigated and rainfed areas and estimated to 1,039,350 ha. The population exposure analysis using WorldPop data shows that ~10,000,000 people are potentially affected by floods in the analysed zone: ~5,400,000 are located in Dhaka Division and ~2,750,000 in Rajshahi Division. Please note that for visualization purposes the analyzed area is wider than the extent of this map.This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
