Abstract

Tropical forest successional stages have been mapped previously with multi-temporal satellite sensor imagery. The precise identification and classification of such stages, however, has proved difficult. This Letter presents a new method for the classification of forest successional stages following deforestation in Brazilian Amazonia. Multi-temporal Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) and derived fraction images and field data were used in a semi-automatic classification approach. The results were encouraging and signal the application of the method for the entire Brazilian Amazonia.
