    Description

    This study has as objective to assess AIRDAS (Airborne Infrared Disaster Assessment System) sensor for the monitoring of deforestation in the northern area of Mato Grosso State, between the latitudes 10° and 12° south and longitudes 54° and 56° west, within the area known as deforestation arch. The results show that the main advantage of this sensor is the spatial resolution achieved, which allows the detection of highgreding areas, and several regeneration stages in previously exploited areas. It is concluded that AIRDAS sensor is efficient on deforestation monitoring, mainly in areas where there is a mix of exploitation methods.
