Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        CD-Q2 - How do biological processes such as mortality and recruitment or succession following land use change influence the net annual carbon balance for different land cover and land use types?
        CD-Q3 - What are the relative contributions of fluxes from natural and disturbed ecosystems to the net Amazônia-wide flux?
        CD-Q3b - How does selective logging change the storage and cycling of carbon in forests?

Land Cover and Land Use Change:

        LC-Q3 - What is the area of forest that is affected by selective logging each year? How does the intensity of selective logging influence forest ecosystem function, thus altering forest regrowth and flammability?

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?
