Inauguration of the Tallest Climate Monitoring Tower in Brazil

On 22 August, 2015, representatives from Brazil and Germany inaugurated the tallest climate monitoring tower “Amazonian Tall Tower Observatory” (ATTO). It is located in the largest continuous area of rainforest in the world and, at 325m, is taller than the Eiffel Tower. “ATTO will improve our understanding of climate change and help us protect the planet's green lung”, says German Federal Minister of Research, Johanna Wanka. The tower will serve as a research base, helping researchers to analyse the impact the Amazon region has on the global climate. For more information click here.
