Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        CD-Q3b - How does selective logging change the storage and cycling of carbon in forests?
        CD-Q3d - What portion of the Amazônia–wide carbon flux is from fire? How do ecosystems recover from fire? What are the relations between land management and fire occurrence/frequency?

Land Cover and Land Use Change:

        LC-Q3 - What is the area of forest that is affected by selective logging each year? How does the intensity of selective logging influence forest ecosystem function, thus altering forest regrowth and flammability?
