Caption: Flooding in Bangladesh. Multitemporal, satellite radar image highlighting the 2007 flooding in Bangladesh and parts of India caused by two weeks of persistent rain. Areas in black and white denote no change, areas outlined in blue are potentially flooded spots. Areas in red may also indicate flooding but could be related to agricultural practices. North is at top. Calcutta (bottom left, white), Dhaka (centre right, white), the mouth of the Ganges (centre) and the Brahmaputra river, splitting into two branches (blackish), can also be seen. This composite consists of two images acquired by Envisat's Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) instrument - one acquired on 26 July 2007 and another on 12 April 2007.
