ARIA-SG Flood Proxy Map: Vietnam Floods, 6 Sep 2019, v0.1 (Main)
This preliminary map shows areas that are likely flooded (shown by light blue pixels of 30 m in size) in central Vietnam due to heavy rains brought by Tropical Storm Podul a week before, and Tropical Depression Kajiki. The map extents are indicated by the white polygon. This map should be used as a guidance to identify areas that are likely flooded, and is less reliable over urban and vegetated areas.
Derived from synthetic aperture radar data acquired by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) before (3 Apr) and during (6 Sep) the event. Analysed by the ARIA-SG team at the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS), using the ARIA-SG system originally developed by NASA-JPL and Caltech. Data processing used an AWS Open Dataset of Copernicus Sentinel-1 data for the Asia region
