Nesse caso, desmatamentos por corte raso ou degradação por corte seletivo e queimadas seriam identificadas por meio de mudanças no MDE ao invés de mudanças na intensidade ou fase da energia retroespalhada, como vem sendo feito até os dias atuais.

backscattered
Explanation:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backscatter
In physics, backscatter (or backscattering) is the reflection of waves, particles, or signals back to the direction from which they came. It is a diffuse reflection due to scattering, as opposed to specular reflection as from a mirror. Backscattering has important applications in astronomy, photography, and medical ultrasonography.
