Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        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?

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?

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?
