This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface waters extent and evolution in Thua Thien Hue Province, Vietnam, as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 06 December 2016 and 18 December 2016. Within the province area, an increase of surface waters extent was observed between the 06 and the 18 December 2016. ~38,400 ha of surface water were observed the 06 December 2016 and reached ~50,850 ha the 18 December 2016. All over the province area, it corresponds to an evolution of about 32%. This evolution was particularly observed in Phong Diên District (+6,100 ha) and Quang Diên District (+1,780 ha). This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
