There are a number of interesting satellite photos that NASA have released in the past couple of months. The early floods in Queensland were documented here -

They then followed the floods into the Cooper and Darling rivers

Then the Brisbane floods were photographed from the air by Nearmap. The ABC site have a nice infographic using that imagery -

NASA again released some photos of the floods in Victoria. These have been referred to in the media as the “inland sea” and it’s only using satellite imagery that you can really understand what that means.

This and LIDAR data is becoming more and more useful in natural resource management.
