Jost Lavric will give a talk with slide show on Thursday, 22 August 2019 entitled
"High above for climate research in the Amazon".

The Amazon is of vital importance for the global climate and the water cycle in South America. At the "Amazon Tall Tower Observatory" (ATTO;, in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, our measuring tower rises 325 meters far above the canopy. We investigate the functioning and changes of this ecosystem, characterized by the complex interaction between organisms, vegetation, soil and air, in a large German-Brazilian cooperation project.

The public lecture in German language starts at 05.30 p.m.
