NASA satellites show vegetation decline in the Amazon

NASA's Aqua satellite was one of the satellites used for the study

A new study founded by NASA and published on November 11 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows a 13-year decline in vegetation in the eastern and southeastern Amazon. While the decline was small, the area affected encompassed 5.4 million square kilometres, equivalent to over half the area of continental United States.

NASA satellites were fundamental in the study and were used to measure the "greenness" of the vegetation in the Amazon. Moreover, they were used in a new and innovative way.
