This map illustrates the expansion of flood waters on Lake Manchar in Sindh Province based on a time series analysis of satellite data recorded between 4 July and 6 October 2010. As shown in the left map frame, flood waters have continued to spread from Lake Manchar to the north-east, flooding an estimated 60 villages and small towns between 16 September and 6 October. In contrast, flood levels have dramatically receded along the main Indus river channel immediately to the east of the lake. The right map frame presents the relative extent of standing water levels at four separate dates. This flood assessment is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT. Map scale for A3:1:200,000; Projection: UTM Zone 48 North; Datum: WGS-84.
