Abstract: This data set, acquired as part of the Japanese Space Agency (NASDA)
Global Rain Forest Mapping Project (GRFM), is now available at the
Tropical Rain Forest Information Center (TRFIC) - SAR node at JPL.
The pixel spacing of the data is 100m. This data set is sensitive to
flooded forest conditions, and to changes in forest structure
(ie. high and low vegetation).

Currently, for South America, two ... View entire text
