             abstract = "The objective of this paper is to present the capability of remote 
                         sensing and GIS techniques for detecting and monitoring the 
                         anthropic alterations (mainly, fire action)which sometimes occur 
                         in preservation areas. For examples, in the Brazil Central region 
                         occupied by savanna ({"}cerrado{"}), the vegetation burning 
                         procedure is commnly employed in the process of implantation and 
                         management of cattle raising and agricultural activities. During 
                         this annual burning p;rocess, fires even reach the environmental 
                         protection areas such as national Parks. For this study, the Emas 
                         National Park, located in the South-western of Goias State, 
                         Brazil, betweem 52 40'W to 53 10'W and 17 50'S to 18 25'S, was 
                         selected as the study area. This national Park had its area 
                         frequently burned in the dry season, as well as in August, 1988. 
                         In this investigation, the TM/Landsat data from July 29, 1988 and 
                         AVHRR/NOAA data obtained in this period covered by TM images were 
                         used for monitoring the biomass burning. The TM images were 
                         registered to a topographic map in torder to build a database 
                         including information such as drainage, roads, elevation and 
                         vegetation type for this National Park. Pixels classified as 
                         burned areas using band 3 (3,55 um to 3,93um )of AVHRR images were 
                         overlayed on the map derived from the database. The SITIM (Image 
                         Processing System)developed by INPE were utilizes in this 
                         research. The integration of elevation, TM multitemporal data and 
                         information extracted from AVHRR images is a valuable tool for the 
                         managers to detect and evaluate the damage occurred as well as to 
                         monitor the regeneration process of land cover.",
