This map illustrates satellite-detected surface water in Salavan provinces of Lao PDR as observed from Sentinel-1 imagery acquired on 10 September 2019. Within the analysed extent of about 4,000 km2, a total about 4 km2 of land appear to be flooded as of 10 September 2019. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
Important Note: Flood analysis from Sentinel-1 imagery acquired on 10 September 2019 may seriously underestimate presence of standing flood water in built up areas due to backscattering of the radar signal
