Hurricane Florence Resources - MODIS Near Real-Time Global Flood Detection

UPDATE 9/19/18:

This MODIS flood detection map from 9/19/18 shows the 1-day flood product (in red), on top of the 1-day surface water product (in yellow) in Google Earth.

This MODIS flood detection map from 9/19/18 shows the 1-day flood product (in red), on top of the 1-day surface water product (in yellow) in Google Earth.

The MODIS Near Real-Time Global Flood Mapping Project produces global daily surface and flood water maps at approximately 250 m resolution, in 10x10 degree tiles.

This project was developed in collaboration with Bob Brakenridge at the Dartmouth Flood Observatory (DFO): http://floodobservatory.colorado.edu
