A survey of shallow (fair weather) cumulus clouds over part of Amazonia yields evidence of enhanced frequency where the forest had been cleared. The survey covers one dry-season month from 1988. It employs a threshold algorithm to construct an image of cumulus cloud cover from sets of geostationary satellite visibleinfrared image pairs. Cumulus images were constructed for two times. The morning image shows no association of the cumulus index with cultural features. However, in the afternoon image a patch of high index values coincides with deforestation along highway BR-364 in the state of Rondonia.
