Dataset Abstract:

Exchanges of water, energy and carbon between Amazonian ecosystems and the atmosphere is investigated using the numerical model SiB2.
Simulations are driven by
a) observed meteorology (from ABRACOS) - a forest site (Reserva Biologica do Jaru) - a pasture site (Fazenda Nossa Senhora)
b) biophysical parameters prescribed from AVHRR data.
SiB2 was also coupled to a mesoscale model (CSU-RAMS) and used to investigate the diurnal evolution of CO2 and other scalars in the planetary boundary layer.
