Bolivian Deforestation from 1984 to 2000

The Landsat Project was started to study the land and land processes. The program is now working on Landsat 7.

We are able to compare older data sets to newer ones. Using a Landsat images of Bolivia taken in 1984 and 2000, we can see the dramatic deforestation of the Bolivian rainforest.
