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-Q3 - What are the relative contributions of fluxes from natural and disturbed ecosystems to the net Amazônia-wide flux?

Land Cover and Land Use Change:

        LC-Q1 - What are the rates and mechanisms of forest conversion to agricultural land uses, and what is the relative importance of these land uses?
