Global Flood Detection System
Institution European Commission Joint Research Centre, GLOBESEC
Description The Global Flood Detection System monitors floods worldwide using near-real time satellite data. Surface water extent is observed using passive microwave remote sensing (AMSR-E and TRMM sensors). When surface water increases significantly (anomalies with probability of less than 99.5%), the system flags it as a flood. Time series are calculated in more than 10000 monitoring areas, along with small scale flood maps and animations.
Basic info To obtain data select the global map menu option and you will seee a map manager that allows to select ongoing floods reported in RSS feeds as well as to select one of Joint Research Global maps.
