Introduction
I’ve experienced in the area of Environmental Sciences with an emphasis on Environmental Engineering, acting mainly on the following themes: interactions/transfers between soil-vegetation-atmosphere, surface fluxes, vegetation dynamics, numerical modeling, meteorology/micrometeorology and hydrology measurements, environmental monitoring, sensor and software development, gravity currents, turbidity and resuspension of sediments in water bodies, and low-cost devices.

Este trabalho implementa um modelo de transferência entre superfície-vegetação-atmosfera para estimar os fluxos de calor sensível e latente, entre outras variáveis, em culturas agrícolas e outras coberturas vegetais. Foram feitas duas implementações distintas para o de resposta estomática das plantas. Estas implementações foram comparadas entre si...
Article
Full-text available
In this work we present results from an intercomparison study between two CS500 temperature-relative humidity sensors and a brand new sonic anemometer/gas analyzer (Campbell Scientific Instruments – CSI IRGASON). The objective of the intercomparison was an upcoming micrometeorological experiment. For the intercomparison, all sensors were positioned...
Experiment Findings
We describe a 5-day campaign of eddy-covariance measurements at Itaipu Lake, in Southern Brazil and estimates of CO2 fluxes over crops in the same region with a SVAT model.

We investigate surface fluxes with the ISBA soil-vegetation-atmosphere transfer model (Noilhan and Planton, 1989). The model includes CO2 flux based on Jacobs et al. (1996), similarly to Calvet et al. (1998) (ISBA-A-gs). The calibration and validation of the model developed was done with three years (2002, 2004 and 2006) of data from AmeriFlux in a...

2020 AGU Fall Meeting Abstracts, B106–02. American Geophysical Union (AGU). We investigate the CO2 flux calculated by the ISBA soil-vegetation-atmosphere transfer model (Noilhan and Planton, 1989) by comparing three different formulations for the plant (dark) respiration scheme applied to a soybean culture. The model includes CO2 flux/photosynthe...
Article
Full-text available
Despite a rapid development of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) for carbon removal in recent years, the methods for evaluating NBS still have certain gaps. We propose an approach based on a combination of remote sensing data and meteorological variables to reconstruct the spatiotemporal variation of net ecosystem exchange from eddy-covariance stations....

This article is composed of three independent commentaries about the state of Integrated, Coordinated, Open, Networked (ICON) principles in the American Geophysical Union Biogeosciences section, and discussion on the opportunities and challenges of adopting them. Each commentary focuses on a different topic: (a) Global collaboration, technology tra...
Conference Paper

This study presents some applications of Dyenamic, an automatic dye tracing software which has is designed to analyze gravity currents from laboratory experiments and numerical models. Dyenamic tracks flow features of dye-coloured experimental setups. Through video observations obtained with standard cameras (e.g. professional cameras or cell phone...
Presentation
Research presentation and discussion in the first Latin America Early Career Earth System Scientist Network (LAECESS) online webinar, to discuss the past, present, and future of Earth System Sciences.
Presentation
Full-text available
These webinars will include several early-career researchers and students from the AmeriFlux community. Their studies span from site-level greenhouse gas analyses, drought-induced tree mortality, to cross-site syntheses of network representativeness.

The impacts of climate change on the biological world vary spatially. Species can adapt, migrate, or die in response to the greenhouse effect and its consequences. An issue is the productivity loss in plantations or the need to exchange traditional crops for others with climate resilience. In this context, photosynthesis and respiration processes a...
Poster
Submission approved at The Earth and Space Science Open Archive (ESSOAr) community server to accelerate the open discovery and dissemination of Earth and space science early research outputs, including preprints and posters presented at major scientific meetings.
Thesis
Full-text available
A surface-vegetation-atmosphere interaction model was implemented, with different formulations for calculating the vegetation component’s respirations (leaves and other structures above and below ground). The model was applied to three soybean plantations to test all implementations, including the different respirations calculations methods. Two si...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Observations have shown that gravity currents, a horizontal buoyancy driven flow generated by density differences commonly observed in lakes and reservoirs, may be an important agent of sediment resuspension, playing an important role for water quality of these ecosystems. We ran laboratory experiments in a rectangular tank to characterize the sedi...

This paper describes a method for calculating evapotranspiration and soil moisture in a soybean plantation using a modified version of the SVAT ISBA (Noilhan and Planton, 1989) model of surface-vegetation-atmosphere transfer. The calculation of the original evapotranspiration of the model uses purely physical parameters. The module A-gs proposed by...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Environmental monitoring is an important issue to guarantee continuous preservation of the natural resources. Lakes and reservoirs are closed water bodies that often have an inherent dynamic, in which modify spatially and temporally many environmental parameters. One of the most important parameters to evaluate the water quality is the turbidity, w...

In this dissertation we implement a model to calculate the carbon dioxide flux in a soybean culture, using a modified version of the surface-vegetation-atmosphere transfer model (SVAT) ISBA (Noilhan e Planton, 1989). The model consists of a six ordinary differential equations for the surface temperature, temperature of root soil layer, moisture of...
