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.
the ATTO workshop 2023 will take place in Manaus September 25 – 27, registration is open until August 15.
The future of the Amazon rainforest and its influence on the global climate were the focus of the visit by Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Steffi Lemke to the ATTO – Amazon Tall Tower Observatory in Brazil. The President and the Federal Minister for the Environment visited the German-Brazilian research station, in which the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena and the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz participate, on January 2nd.
This October, scientists from the ATTO project met in Manaus, Brazil for our project workshop. It clearly confirmed that ATTO has developed into a research site with globally unique capabilities – despite the pandemic and challenging field conditions. It was the first in-person workshop since the start of the pandemic and many project members had met in person for the first time since early 2020. For this reason alone, the spirits were high.
We are pleased to inform all ATTO researchers that this year, we hold our annual workshop again in person this year. Like in 2019, the INPA in Manaus will be our host. The workshop will take place October 3 – 6, with the option for an overnight excursion to ATTO the following day. Registration is now open.
