This map illustrates satellite-detected small temporary water bodies, wetlands and other humid areas as mesured every 10 days between 1999 and July 2013 by SPOT satellites. Each pixel therefore indicates how many decadal (ten day) periods within the 14 years sampling period experienced some form of inundation or wetland conditions. Darker pixels indicate areas with relatively higher frequencey of inundations, while lighter pixels indicates areas with less frequent inundations.This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
