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...

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...

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...
