Site Type:  Field Site

Description:  The Brasília National Park, comprising an area of approximately 30,000 ha, is located in the northern Federal District of Brazil, between 15°35' S and 15°45' S latitude and 47°53' W and 48°05' longitude. It is the world's largest area of natural vegetation within an urban domain. The Brasília National Park encompasses the major true savanna formations encountered in the cerrado biome, which depicts the transitions from the dominant herbaceous stratum (savanna grassland, shrub grassland, and the savanna grassland or shrub savanna with termiters) to the more complex, wooded dominated stratum (wooded savanna and the savanna woodland). Other important land cover classes in the Park are the Santa Maria Lake in the central portion, and the anthropogenic and reforested areas, both located in the eastern part of the Park. The Brasília National Park serves as a test site for EOS MODIS evaluation along with other sites in Brasília, Santarém, and Ji-Paraná.
