                         understanding of the interaction of tropical rainforest in 
                         Amazonia with the atmosphere . Identifying these gaps will then 
                         lead to a well designed and focused programme of experiments and 
                         field work for the Large Scale Biosphere Atmosphere Experiment in 
                         Amazonia (LBA). The leading two questions to be addressed by the 
                         land surface- atmosphere mesoscale experiment of LBA are the 
                         following: what are the mesoscale mechanisms by which differences 
                         in surface characteristics translate into large scale weather 
                         anomalies and what is the role of dry and moist convection in 
                         transferring energy and how will it change with different land use 
                         patterns? The availability and use of existing data, such as that 
                         from ABRACOS and the Rond{\^o}nia Boundary Layer Experiment was 
                         essential to the success of this project. In essence the project 
                         concentrated on three areas: ongoing collection of field data, 
                         mesoscale and 1-D modelling, and mapping of land cover and land 
                         cover change by remote sensing.",
