Amazon Forests and Global Change – Summer School 2023
The summer school Amazon Forests and Global Change is part of the Amazon Tall Tower Observatory (ATTO) project, which investigates forest functioning, biodiversity, forest-atmosphere interactions, and atmospheric chemistry and physics. Its objective is to offer scientific theory and methods to investigate forest functioning, biodiversity, and forest-atmosphere interactions in the context of global change, and takes place at INPA, Manaus and at ATTO Sep 28 – Oct 10, 2023.

Tropical forests are key components of global carbon and biogeochemical cycles; however, how they will respond to global change – such as increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases, increased temperatures, and changes in precipitation regimes – is still highly uncertain. In this light, the ATTO project has an interdisciplinary approach, including meteorology, atmospheric chemistry and physics, biogeochemistry, and forest ecology, among others, to develop observations and model-data integration to improve our understanding of the Amazon Forest in a global change context.

The summer school will take place from September 28 to October 10, 2023. The activities will be divided into two sections – one focused primarily on observations and the other on modeling. The observational part will be developed at the ATTO experimental site at the Uatumã Reserve (~150 km from Manaus), with activities focused on measurement techniques (see topics I-III) integrated with data analysis approaches. The modeling part will occur at the National Insitute for Amazonian Research (INPA), Manaus.
