Activity Description

2003  

  • USP-IPEN researcher visits NOAA/DMDL

    Dr. Luciana Gatti, from the Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares (IPEN) at USP, visited NOAA/CMDL - Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory - in Boulder, Colorado, USA, for two months during the Summer of 2003. Dr. Gatti received training and helped build a replica of the NOAA/CMDL trace gas analysis system. During her visit, a working system, including customized software, was built.

    These efforts will contribute for a smooth transition of the analysis system from Boulder to the University of São Paulo (USP).

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?

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?
