Caption: Amazon deforestation. Multitemporal radar image showing deforestation in the Diamantina area of Brazil. The image was made by combining two frames taken on different days. The large rectangular patches are fields caused by 'slash and burn' clearing by cattle farmers. The colours within these dark areas reflect the changes to surface cover as grass grows; growth of grass in the month between the two frames being acquired is shown as green, whilst land burnt between the two frames is red. Land previously cleared but with no new growth is seen as black. The data for this image were gathered by the ERS-1 European radar mapping satellite.
