About: Dr. Gabriel de Oliveira is an Assistant Professor of Geography in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of South Alabama. Dr. de Oliveira has a large expertise working in the Amazon Rainforest, focusing on the use of orbital remote sensing imagery and ground observations in order to understand how deforestation, fire, and droughts affect the plant ecophysiological processes and, consequently, the regional climate due to the exchanges of water and carbon between the biosphere and the atmosphere. Addressing these questions is essential for an improved understanding of the survival and fitness of plants, plant species distribution, and for the prediction of ecosystem responses to future climate change.
