ATTO - Amazonian Tall Tower Observatory

funded by DFG WE1900/xx-x

ATTO is a joint project between Brazil and Germany focused on understand the influence of the Amazon rainforest on the climate. Within the ATTO project our group aims to understand the deep convective clouds evolution in untouched tropical forest. We will profile the cloud sides reflections with image spectrometers in the solar and infrared spectral range (0.4 to 2.5 µm) to obtain vertical profiles of microphysical cloud parameters. Also a thermal infrared sensor at 11 µm wavelength will deliver information about the brightness temperature, indicating the height of the different layers.
