This color composite image (VV/VH polarized – R: nul, G: HH, B: HV) of the western Amazon in Brazil was derived from a Standard mode scene at 25 m resolution. Standard mode scenes have a size of 100 km x 100 km. This image clearly shows the difference between the large, dense unlogged section of the forest in the north and east portion of the image, and the more developed less dense section of forest. RADARSAT-2 is an ideal sensor for monitoring cloud-covered tropical regions, and MDA provides reliable forest management applications that can detect illegal logging, including both clear cuts as well as selective deforestation.
