This map illustrates satellite-detected flood waters over the affected districts in central Mozambique. Flooded areas have been sorted into 2 classes: Red areas represent standing flood waters identified with a high degree of confidence. Yellow areas represent flood-affected areas, possibly covered with standing water, identified with a lower degree of confidence. The total area flooded per district has been calculated in km2. Flood analysis was made using MODIS Terra & Aqua data recorded 4 January 2008. Additional pre-flood MODIS imagery from November 2007 represented in blue) was used in this analysis. The rainfall estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 25km for this region. Map Scale for A3: 1:700,000
