Description

This data set provides three Amazon Basin wetland image products: (1) a Central Amazon Wetlands Mask, (2) a Central Amazon Wetlands Vegetative-hydrologic Land Cover Map, and (3) an Amazon Basin Wetlands Mask. All three were derived from the Global Rain Forest Mapping Project (GRFM) dry and wet season mosaics (August-September 1995 and May-August 1996) of the Japanese Earth Resources Satellite-1 (JERS-1) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery data (Rosenqvist et al., 2000 and Chapman et al., 2001). There are 6 GeoTIFF image files with this data set.

Project

Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere : The Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA) is an intensive scientific investigation of the tropical rainforest of Brazil and portions of adjacent countries. Like FIFE and BOREAS, this project uses intensive remote-sensing techniques and ground-based experiments to investigate the atmosphere-biosphere-hydrosphere dynamics of this large tropical region. The LBA Project encompasses several scientific disciplines, or components. The LBA-ECO component focuses on the question: "How do tropical forest conversion, regrowth, and selective logging influence carbon storage, nutrient dynamics, trace gas fluxes, and the prospect for sustainable land use in Amazonia?"
