This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of standing flood waters over the affected districts of Phnom Penh and Kandal, Cambodia following heavy rains which began in August. This flood analysis is based on change detection analysis with TerraSAR-X radar data recorded 09 March 2009 and 21 September 2011. It is possible that flood waters have been underestimated in heavily vegetated areas and within urban environments. This flood assessment is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
