Abstract: [1] We have investigated mesoscale circulations and atmospheric CO 2 variations over a heterogeneous landscape of forests, pastures, and large rivers during the Santarém Mesoscale Campaign (SMC) of August 2001. The atmospheric CO 2 concentration variations were simulated using the Colorado State University Regional Atmospheric Modeling System with four nested grids that included a 1-km finest grid centered on the Tapajós National Forest. Surface CO 2 fluxes were prescribed using idealized diurnal cycles over …
