- Satellite imagery of japanese flooding
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
- Using the NASA MODIS satellite sensor's multispectral capability at 250 meter resolution, it is possible to see the impact of the tsunami flooding on the Japanese coast. By combining bands 4, 2, and 1 to provide high contrast of the coastline, land areas appear green, water and flooded areas are dark blue/black, and clouds/snow appear white. The image on the top shows the satellite pass on February 26, 2011 while the image on the bottom shows the pass on March 13, 2011 - both relatively cloud-free days. The relatively smooth looking coastline before the tsunami gives way to a much more jagged appearance afterwards
