The Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment
The Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA)
is an international research project led by Brazil.
NASA currently contributes to two components of the LBA program. One deals with the ecology
of the region and the other deals with the hydrologic
cycle. NASA's Land Surface Hydrology Program official incorporation into the
large scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA) is currently in
The world's tropical forests
are under major stress of conversion to various forms of land use. The implications this might have on regional and global climate, are not well known.
Spaceborne remote sensing capabilities will help to define the basin
scale forcing functions, and determine how the basin functions as a regional
entity. At this website, provided will be information on radiative fluxes that are necessary to
advance the understanding of the role of water in land-atmosphere interactions and for evaluation of land surface parametrizations.
Developed will be improved inference techniques that take into
account deforestation in Rondonia and information on biomass burning in the
