Title: Mapping Deforestation and Land Use in Amazon Rainforest Using SAR-C Imagery
Authors: Saatchi, Sasan S.
Soares, Joao Vianei
Alves, Diogenes Salas
Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: Land use changes and deforestation in tropical rainforests are among the major factors affecting the overall function of the global environment. To routinely assess the spatial extend and temporal dynamics of these changes has become an important challenge in several scientific disciplines such as climate and environmental studies. In this paper, the feasibility of using polarimetric spaceborne SAR data in mapping land cover types in the Amazon is studied.
