MODIS OWL Summary Maps of surface water for NAWRA


This dataset contains summary maps of surface water using MODIS satellite data from 2000 to 2015, and the Open Water Likelihood (OWL) algorithm produced for the Northern Australia Water Resource Assessment (NAWRA). Flooding can be catastrophic to agricultural production in terms of loss of stock, fodder, topsoil and damage to crops and infrastructu... more

The datasets are derived from NASA’s 8-day composite MODIS data (MOD09A1) from the TERRA satellite for the Maximum percent water product, and NASA’s daily MODIS data from the TERRA (MOD09GA) and AQUA (MYD09GA) for the Percentage of wet-pixel observations and Maximum inundation duration products.


The Australian Government commissioned CSIRO to complete the Northern Australia Water Resource Assessment (NAWRA) - an initiative of the Australian Government’s White Paper on Developing Northern Australia and the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper, the government’s plan for stronger farmers and a stronger economy. Aspects of the Assessment were undertaken in conjunction with the Northern Territory Government, the Western Australian Government, and the Queensland Government
