Bridgewater before and after 2014 floods17 February 2014 – Airbus Defence and Space has released before and after satellite imagery showing the extent of recent flooding around Bridgewater in the UK. Airbus DS’s Spot 6 Earth observation satellite captured images of the River Parrett near Bridgewater in south west England on 8 June 2013, and then again on 11 February 2014 after the river had breached its banks following heavy rainfall.

Spot 6 forms part of the Airbus Defence and Space constellation of optical and radar satellites with superior change detection capabilities that help to support flood damage assessment.
