Impressions from the most recent field trip to Northern Mato Grosso, Brazil

Impressions from the most recent field trip to Northern Mato Grosso, Brazil. The map shows a recent acquisition by Landsat-8 (July 3rd 2014, false color composite RGB=5,6,4).
Image-01 (preview) shows typical land cover types for the area, from left to right, tall primary rainforest, lower secondary forest dominated by palm trees, and pasture in the foreground. Image-02 (preview) shows a logging deck where the timber extracted from a selective logging site (north of point#2 in the map) is stored. Image-03 (preview) shows some degraded primary forest likely due to selective logging activities. For more information see SenseCarbon & Carbiocial projects.
