Aims: The objective of this study is twofold: i) explore a simple, empirical relationship based on freely available, remotely sensed data and the water levels recorded at Prek Kdam (one week prior) to predict total inundated area of the Tonle Sap flood plain; and ii) use the relationship to provide a preliminary demarcation of flood risk zones around the Tonle Sap Lake. Study Design: This study is designed to predict inundation in the Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia.
