Experiment on the boundary layer in Rondônia (RBLE)


The objective of this project is to collect meteorological data (atmospheric pressure, temperature and specific air humidity, velocity and direction of winds) from the structure of the nighttime boundary layer, using a fixed balloon, as a special sensor for measuring coupled CO2. The experiment will be carried out in Manaus, during the dry season (July 95), in an area of tropical forest. The project is an Anglo-Brazilian scientific cooperation, with participation from Inpe, INPA and CTA/IAE. (AU)
