The storm tracks response to changes in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentration at the south of Brazil and southwest Atlantic Ocean.

Here we investigate the ocean-atmosphere coupling and the contribution of the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) variations in: 1) Brazil-Malvinas Confluence (BMC) region, 2) Southwest Atlantic Ocean and 3) Southern Brazil. Numerical simulations of the ECHAM5/MPI-OM coupled ocean-atmosphere model were us...

Sustainability agenda for the Pantanal wetland: perspectives on a collaborative interface for science, policy, and decision-making.

Building bridges between environmental and political agendas is essential nowadays in face of the increasing human pressure on natural environments, including wetlands. Wetlands provide critical ecosystem services for humanity and can generate a considerable direct or indirect income to the local co...

Four decades of hydrological process simulation of the Itacaiunas river watershed, southeast Amazon.

The impacts of anthropogenic degradation are becoming increasingly more evident in the Amazon and are jeopardizing its environmental systems and water resources, particularly in low monitored watersheds. Thus, the use of hydrological models is necessary to gain an understanding of these impacts on A...

Challenges of performing socio-environmental interdisciplinary research: the experience of the Brazilian Research Network on Climate Change (Rede CLIMA).

How can you move a team of scholars of the most varied academic backgrounds out of their multidisciplinary comfort zone and towards genuine interdisciplinarity (integration and collaboration) in the climate change research field? This was the challenge that a project faced concerning the climate cha...

Evaluating spatial coverage of data on the aboveground biomass in undisturbed forests in the Brazilian Amazon.

Background: Brazilian Amazon forests contain a large stock of carbon that could be released into the atmosphere as a result of land use and cover change. To quantify the carbon stocks, Brazil has forest inventory plots from diferent sources, but they are unstandardized and not always available to th...

Solar smart grid as a path to economic inclusion and adaptation to climate change in the Brazilian Semiarid Northeast.

Purpose: This study aims to exploit the abundance of solar energy resources for socioeconomic development in the semi -arid Northeastern Brazil as a potent adaptation tool to global climate change. It points out a set of conjuncture factors that allow us to foresee a new paradigm of sustainable deve...

The seasonal variability and trends for the surface solar irradiation in northeastern region of Brazil.

Earlier studies have demonstrated that the Northeastern Brazilian region (NEB) has the most abundant solar energy resource of the Brazilian territory due to its geographical location, and its environmental characteristics. However, the spatial and seasonal variability was little evaluated. This work...

Multi-scale approach to estimating aboveground biomass in the Brazilian Amazon using Landsat and LiDAR data.

Forest degradation from either natural or anthropogenic drivers involves processes that change the capacity of the ecosystem to provide services. In Brazil, estimates of carbon emissions do not currently take into account emissions from forest degradation caused by fire or by selective logging. Here...

Effects of climate and land‐use change scenarios on fire probability during the 21st century in the Brazilian Amazon.

The joint and relative effects of future land-use and climate change on fire occurrence in the Amazon, as well its seasonal variation, are still poorly understood, despite its recognized importance. Using the maximum entropy method (MaxEnt), we combined regional land-use projections and climatic dat...
