Training and Education Activities - Proposed:

Our training and education component for this grant is comprised of working together with Dr. Luciana Gatti and Monica D’Amelio, her Ph.D. student. D’Amelio will travel to work with the US-PI and co-I for extended (~1 month) visits in all three years to participate in 1) data analysis 2) forward model analysis and 3) flux estimation. She will be housed at NOAA/CMDL where the PI and co-I work and have access to a wide range of expertise in trace gas interpretation including and beyond the investigators in this project. The interpretation of the trace-gas vertical profiles will form the bulk of her Ph.D. studies. Our further objective is that M. D’Amelio will take the lead on two publications related to our project: one dealing with presenting that data sets and their analysis, and a second analyzing differences between simulated and observed concentrations.
As with our Phase II project, a large aspect of our training component involves the transfer of technology and infrastructure to our Brazilian partners. In the case of Phase II, this involved and hardware and associated software, but in the case of the present proposal it will involve the transfer of analytical tools. Specifically, we will be able to share our flux calculation algorithms, data analysis software, and model codes. There are currently no large-scale working CO2 flux calculation routines running in Brazil, to our knowledge, and our project would allow for operational flux calculations to be implemented at either of the labs of our collaborators, most likely the INPE lab of Dr. M. Silva Dias.

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-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?

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?
        TG-Q2 - What is the (climatically driven) seasonal and inter-annual variability of trace gas and aerosol fluxes between the atmosphere and different land use and land cover types?
        TG-Q3 - Are losses and gains of carbon from Amazônian ecosystems in forms other than carbon dioxide (e.g. carbon monoxide, methane, volatile organic carbon, organic aerosol) of sufficient magnitude to influence ecosystem carbon balance?
