LBA-ECO LC-22 Field Validation of MODIS Deforestation Detection, Brazil, 2003-2004

Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO LC-22 Field Validation of MODIS Deforestation Detection, Brazil, 2003-2004
Release date2014-12-16
ProjectLarge Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere
Time Period2004-07-14


This data set contains field observations, corresponding GPS points, and point and polygons of deforested areas in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, for the period August 2003 to July 2004. The field observations were conducted in the forested areas between Nova Mutum and Sinop, MT. These data were part of a study to validate Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data at 250-m resolution for the detection of deforested areas. There are 16 data files with this data set. This includes 10 shapefile (.shp) and six comma-separated files (.csv).

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?"
