This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of flood affected land along the White and Blue Nile rivers in the states of Khartoum and Al Jazeera, Sudan as detected by MODIS Terra acquired on 11 August 2013.
Notes: The exact limit of flood waters is uncertain because of the low spatial resolution of the satellite data used for this analysis. Detected water bodies likely reflect an underestimation of all flood-affected areas within the map extent. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR /UNOSAT.
