|Figure 1.5 Deforestation in Brazil
Estimation of rainforest cover at the sub-pixel
using ATSR-2 images of the
Rondonia Province in Brazil. In this thermal
ATSR-2 image of Rondonia, higher temperatures
are represented by light green, decreasing
to dark green. The lighter, 'lined'
regions in the lower half are roads of
deforestation, visible as higher temperature areas.
