Floods in Bangladesh

February 6, 2013
This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from October 5, 2002, show that India and Bangladesh are still experiencing water-logged lowlands. The country of Bangladesh is roughly centered in the image, and in the easternmost parts of the country, the Syhlet region, lakes and standing water can be seen where there are normally only rivers. In the false-color image, the flooding is more prominent, with water appearing brilliant blue amid green vegetation. Clouds are white or light blue.
