Our innovative education program combines international collaboration with interdisciplinary training in earth system science, in which graduate and undergraduate students will:

  1. Work in the Amazon rainforest, first as students in an annual field course in tropical ecology and biogeochemistry, and then (for graduate students), as teachers in a structured graduate mentoring of field research projects;

  2. Develop intensive collaborations with Brazilian scientists and students through exchanges at Brazilian scientific institutions, and develop projects leveraging the extensive datasets and facilities available only as a result of close international PIRE collaboration;

  3. Acquire rigorous training in key disciplines for the scientific study of Amazonia, and the environment generally (ecology and biogeochemistry, hydro-meteorology and climate) using state of the art tools in remote sensing and modeling.
