Happy #WorldRainforestDay! To celebrate, we're introducing our new Instragam account for ATTO, the Amazon Tall Tower Observatory in the middle of the Amazon Basin in Brazil.
ATTO is a research site, where we are collecting data on all components of the ecosystem, from greenhouse gas emissions, to nutrient cycles to cloud formation and much more. We want to find out more about the processes that shape the Amazon, and the impact it has on the global water cycle and climate.
To help protect this unique and important region, it is crucial to better understand these complex processes and cycles.
Follow us to learn more about the research at ATTO and about this pristine region we study: the #AmazonRainforest!
