This paper proposes to use a water detection methodology based on a colorimetric approach to develop a near real time system allowing to monitor and to detect anomalies at a fine time resolution and in a systematic way The algorithm was calibrated over Africa using daily reflectance MODIS data from 2003 to 2011. The proposed approach has 3 major outputs updatable in near real time: (1) a permanent water mask (2) a every 10-days surface water map consolidated with time series and (3) an anomalies detection using 10 years of detection reanalysis. Three validation approaches are developed to deal with the large coverage and the high temporal resolution. The methodology is generic and could be applied to other extent and sensors.
