Training and Education Activities - Proposed:

The synthesis activities being led by CD-33 include 2 workshops.
• Use the Workshops as a primary training vehicle. Students in attendance at Workshop#1 will participate in overall discussions andfollowup activities. Prior to Workshop#2, a modeling and data synthesis workshop for students will be held.
• Continue to conduct short courses on analytical environmental chemistry, as we bring other nodes up on the Rede Beija Rio.
• Continue to work with students through the course of the project, with a particular focus on carrying students through not only their theses but through papers.
• Continue to work with local outlets, from media to public meetings


Training and Education Activities - Accomplished:

Currently none available.


Datasets/Posters Available:

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-Q4 - How do changes in land use and climate alter the stocks, processes and fluxes of dissolved and particulate organic matter, nutrients, and trace gases from the uplands across the riparian zones and floodplains and down the channels of river corridors?
        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-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?

Synthesis Group:  Synthesis: Land-Water Coupling -- Land-water Coupling and Fluvial Transport in the Hydrologic and Carbon Cycles
