Paysages et fronts pionniers amazoniens sous le regard des satellites : l'exemple du Mato Grosso

Abstract : Remote sensing makes it possible to quantify the extent of the clearings in the Brazilian Amazon. The diversity of sensors also enables a multi-scale approach to the landscapes of Mato Grosso, while pinpointing the respective role of the actors in deforestation: large stockbreeders, small settlers, and farmers integrated into the soy, cotton or sugarcane agro-business. The landscapes, originally very different, are moving towards a single type where forest occupies only a tiny area (reserves, ancillary forests) in the middle of pasture or cultivated fields.
