Last night an adventure TV documentary was broadcast on Dutch TV, showing our work in Brazil in investigating the response of the Amazon to climate change. This was hosted by adventure journalist Bernice Notenboom, and involves speedboats, paddle boards, tree climbing and drought experiments and aircraft, and visits to the magical field station at Caxiuana. As well as my involvement it also includes Peter Cox, Antonio Lola da Costa, Greg Asner and Paulo Brando.
It can be seen here.
Lots of Dutch commentary but much of the footage is in English with Dutch subtitles, so it is possible to follow what is going on. An English language version (different edit) will appear on the Weather Channel later this year.
We just has a new paper out on the Caxiuana rainfall removal experiment, which can be downloaded here.
