“Bolivian Deforestation”


Medium: Topographic Map

Location: 2nd Floor

website: nasa.gov






 
 

Once a vast carpet of healthy vegetation, the Amazon rain forest is changing rapidly.  This image of Bolivia shows dramatic deforestation in the Amazon basin.  This image was acquired by using Landsat 7’s Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) sensor.  It is a natural color image, though it has been enhanced.  This is one of a series of four, each showing the Earth from above.
