Above images, which span a 50-day period, were taken by MODIS on NASA’s Terra satellite on July 19, before lower Indus flooded, August 11, and September 7, when floodwater reached the Manchhar Lake.

“These images use a combination of infrared and visible light to increase the contrast between water and land. Water ranges in color from electric blue to navy. Vegetation appears bright green. Bare land ranges in color from pink-beige to brick red. Clouds appear pale blue-green.” Full caption available at Flooding in Pakistan.

Flooding has destroyed about 4 million hectares (10 million acres) of farmland in Pakistan, reports say.
