Activity Description

2003  

  • CD-ROM - "Sensoriamento Remoto: Aplicações para a Preservação, Conservação e Desenvolvimento Sustentável da Amazônia"

    This set of two CD-Roms (in Portuguese) contains an interactive program designed for remote sensing teaching and its applications to environmental studies for undergraduate students. Research experience conducted by LC-09 in Altamira was also included as one of the teaching modules.

    This material was produced by LBA-ECO researchers at the University of Indiana and at INPE:

    • Nelson W. Dias, Paul Mausel and Eduardo Brondizio (Indiana State University)
    • Getúlio T. Batista, Evlyn M. L. Novo, Telma Krug, and João Santos (Inpe)

    The set of CD-Rom was officially introduced to the Brazilian community during the XI Brazilian Remote Sensing Symposium, held in Belo Horizonte, MG, in April 2003.

    The website Sensoriamento Remoto: Aplicações para a Preservação, Conservação e Desenvolvimento Sustentável da Amazônia was developed to facilitate the CD evaluation, dissemination and distribution. It is also a source for additional related materials.

Science Questions:

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?
        LC-Q2 - At what rate are converted lands abandoned to secondary forests; what is the fate of these converted lands, and what are the overall dynamic patterns of land conversion and abandonment?
        LC-Q4 - What are plausible scenarios for future land cover change in Amazônia?

Nutrient Dynamics and Surface Water Chemistry:

        ND-Q2 - Are nutrients major factors that control the rates of regrowth and carbon accumulation in abandoned pastures and regrowing secondary forests?
        ND-Q4a - How will the composition and quantity of nutrients and organic matter entering and being processed within streams be altered under different land-use change scenarios?
