Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        CD-Q3 - What are the relative contributions of fluxes from natural and disturbed ecosystems to the net Amazônia-wide flux?

Nutrient Dynamics and Surface Water Chemistry:

        ND-Q4a - How will the composition and quantity of nutrients and organic matter entering and being processed within streams be altered under different land-use change scenarios?
        ND-Q4b - Are there unique signatures that can be traced downstream?
        ND-Q4c - To what extent do intact riparian zones buffer streams against changes due to anthropogenic activities in surrounding uplands?
        ND-Q5 - What is the importance of periodically "wet" environments (from moist soils to standing and flowing waters) for the land and atmospheric balances of nutrients, carbon dioxide, trace gases, and water and energy on multiple scales?

Trace Gas and Aerosol Flux:

        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?
