Title: Sentinel-2 spots Colombia deforestation



These natural-colour images of Colombia were acquired by the Copernicus Sentinel-2A and -2B satellites on 17 January 2016 and 10 February 2018. They clearly illustrate deforestation in the Guaviare region. The 2018 image shows a fire plume present on the right side and white spots represent the areas interested by logging activity.
