A free-access platform with a wide diversity of data on greenhouse gas emissions in the Amazon is being built by the Research Center for Greenhouse Gas Innovation (RCGI), at the University of São Paulo (USP). The platform will combine variables that control the carbon cycle, in addition to providing assistance in analysis and studies into the region’s role in the global climate.
Currently underway, the first phase consists in the collection of remote sensing data, surface data, and already conducted modeling. Next, the researchers will begin to integrate the various databases and develop the artificial intelligence tools to extract qualified information from the system as a whole.
