Description: 

Tropical deep convection in its natural state and the underlying processes that drive it are poorly understood and modeled, with insufficient observational data sets for model constraint. Given the current state of the science, the Office of Biological and Environmental Research's Climate and Environmental Sciences Division, in collaboration with Brazilian and German organizations, will conduct an integrated experiment to look at the coupled atmosphere-cloud-terrestrial tropical systems.

This experiment, Green Ocean Amazon, GOAmazon, extended through the wet and dry seasons from January 2014 through December 2015.
