|Abstract:||This chapter presents the most recent available results on the spatial distribution and the evolution of Congo Basin forests, based on the processing and analysis of a vast amount of satellite images acquired over the last two decades. First, it will detail a new map of the forest types built upon previous studies and taking advantage of a combination of the best satellite data available. Then, the best available estimation of land cover change is described thanks to two complementary land cover change studies respectively based on: (i) a sample of Landsat sub-scenes covering the entire territory of the 6 forested countries, (ii) a wall-to-wall coverage of Landsat mosaics for the DRC.|
