Deforestation in Rondonia, Brazil. Image 3 of 4. Satellite image of part of the state of Rondonia, Brazil, showing deforested areas (light green). Throughout much of the 1980s, deforestation in Brazil eliminated more than 15,000 square kilometres of forest per year. Deforestation is normally undertaken to create grazing areas for cattle. The removal of trees leaves soil exposed to rapid erosion by water, leading to the removal of valuable top soil. Photographed on 22nd June 1992 by NASA's Landsat-4 satellite.
