Keywords

1. Develop a methodology for the evaluation of compliance with zero deforestation agreements of 2615 livestock farms associated with the Sustainable Colombian Livestock project through the processing of images of Advanced Land Observations Satellites (ALOS) Phased Array Type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR ).
2. Carry out an analysis for the identification of causes and agents of deforestation at a local scale based on primary information for a deforestation hotspot area in Colombia.
3. Develop a methodology for the early detection of deforestation based on remote sensing by evaluating the current state of cloud processing technologies for forest monitoring focused on early detection.
