Debora Cristina Cantador
has a background in Geography from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) with a Master Degree in Geography from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP). She is currently PhD student in Remote Sensing from the National Institute for Space Research in Brazil.
Research: The aim of my research is to verify the impact the change of the land use and land cover in the water resources, in the Atlantic Forest. For this, use the hydrologic modeling, specifically the model Soil Water Assessment Toll (SWAT), this is used for predict the effects the land use and management the production of sediments, water and chemicals in the watershed.

Ricardo Dal'Agnol da Silva
is an Environmental Engineer (2007-2011), Master in Remote Sensing from the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE, 2012-2014), and currently is a PhD student in Remote Sensing in INPE (2016-). His research is focused on forest and carbon dynamics and tropical forest ecology studies, mainly in Amazon forests, integrating field observations and remote sensing data. He is currently investigating tree mortality processes in Amazonia in different spatio-temporal scales using inventory plots, airborne LiDAR, optical very high resolution imagery, and Landsat and MODIS/MAIAC time series.
Research: Assessment of climate change impacts on the biomass and carbon dynamics in the Amazon (Fapesp grant 2015/22987-7)
