Training and Education Activities - Proposed:

Laerte Guimaraes Ferreira, Instituto de Estudos Sócio-Ambientais, Universidade Federal de Goiás (UFG) has two students supported by TG-30, who will soon enter the UFG master program in Geography:

1) Noely Vicente Ribeiro is working on MOD13Q1 data collection.

2) Levindo C.Medeiros is involved with making MODIS data products available via the internet.

Mercedes Bustamente, University of Brasilia, has two students supported by TG-30, one of whom is Dulce Alves da Silva, who is working on synthesis of trace gas measurements from Cerrado ecosystems.

 

Training and Education Activities - Accomplished:

Currently none available.

Science Questions:

Nutrient Dynamics and Surface Water Chemistry:

        ND-Q4 - How do changes in land use and climate alter the stocks, processes and fluxes of dissolved and particulate organic matter, nutrients, and trace gases from the uplands across the riparian zones and floodplains and down the channels of river corridors?

Trace Gas and Aerosol Flux:

        TG-Q1 - How are fluxes of trace gases and aerosols between ecosystems (both upland and wetland) and the atmosphere of Amazônia affected by land cover and land use change?
