Dr. Marcos Longo has Bachelor?s (2000) and M. Sc. (2003) degrees from University of São Paulo, and Ph.D. (2014) degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University. He has scientific experience in the following areas: (1) mesoscale meteorology, with focus on dynamics of tropical convective systems and local circulations; (2) biosphere?atmosphere interactions, with focus on climate change impacts on ecosystem dynamics and carbon cycle in tropical rainforests, and on the impact of land use change on regional climate; (3) impacts of forest degradation through logging and fires on carbon cycle. He has experience in development and application of numerical models in atmospheric sciences, ecology, and carbon cycles; and experience in remote sensing using airborne lidar (light detection and ranging) for detecting changes in tropical forest structure and carbon stocks. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Although deforestation in the Amazon have been decreasing during the last decade, processes associated with forest degradation such as logging, fragmentation, and understory fires still contribute significantly to the carbon cycle. However, the impact of forest degradation processes on carbon cycle remains very uncertain, and observation-based studies are often too short to characterize...
