Activity Description

2004  

  • Michela Figueira initiated training under the supervision of this team as an undergraduate student at the Federal University of Pará, in Santarém. She was the team’s Santarém-based student and technician for three and a half years. Over this period, she was in charge of litter studies at the research site at the km 83 Logged Forest Tower Site in Santarém, Pará, and helped with several field campaigns and logistical support. In 2004, she was accepted to the M.S. program at CENA-USP, under the supervision of Dr. Jean Ometto.
  • Albert de Sousa, an undergraduate student at the Federal University of Pará (UFPA), in Santarém, received training in methodology and data collection. He was in charge of dendrometry measurements and has assisted in many measurement campaigns and logistical details over four years. After this training, he was able to take a position at IBAMA in Manaus, where he currently works as a technician.

  • Augusto Maia has worked as a technician for the CD-04 team providing assistance to many field studies over the last three years.

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-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?
