Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        CD-Q1 - What is the (climatically driven) seasonal and interannual variability of the carbon dioxide flux between the atmosphere and different land cover/use types?
        CD-Q2 - How do biological processes such as mortality and recruitment or succession following land use change influence the net annual carbon balance for different land cover and land use types?
        CD-Q3 - What are the relative contributions of fluxes from natural and disturbed ecosystems to the net Amazônia-wide flux?
        CD-Q3b - How does selective logging change the storage and cycling of carbon in forests?
        CD-Q3c - What factors (biologically mediated, land use history, soil properties, etc.) control the rate of carbon sequestration in biomass and soils of regrowing forest?
