We use an integrative approach to identify sources and sinks of VOCs at the soil-vegetation-atmosphere interface.
We are tracking radiocarbon in ecosystem carbon pools and in respired CO2 to determine the fate and timescale of carbon cycling in Amazon forests.
222Radon can be used as an atmospheric transport tracer. At ATTO it is not measured directly but via its progeny 214Polonium since 2018.
Our goal is the detailed characterization of turbulence regimes at the ATTO tower site. We will characterize them in terms of parameters that are external to the planetary boundary layer (PBL), such as large-scale wind forcing, radiative processes, roughness and thermal surface properties.
With Hydrotraits we investigate the vulnerability of tree species along a gradient of drought duration & intensity across Amazonian ecosystems.
