This map identifies (in red) those land surface areas in northern Belize under 4 meters in elevation, as measured from the SRTM 90m dataset. This represents an approximated upper limit for the NOAA anticipated storm surge of Hurricane Dean which made landfall near Belize on 21 August 2007. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been verified in the field.
