Protocol Activities: 

Vegetation: the census was conducted in three IMAS (Cabo Frio-ZF3, km 34 e km 14-ZF-2). October and November: data processing.

Climate: Collection of climatic variables (precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, diffuse radiation, photosynthetic active radiation - PAR and soil moisture), maintenance of sensors, data tabulation, sending data to the TEAM database; data analysis, development of monthly and annual climatologic  bulletins with our results.

Terrestrial Vertebrates: We removed the cameras from Array 1. We continued the image processing and errors correcting detected in processing the images of the first set of cameras. We started to process data from Array 1.

Protocol Problems: 

Climate: Problems occurred in the sensors that measure radiation Par, diffuse and global. We did the cleaning of sensors and other equipment, however the problem was not resolved. It is a defect in the equipment itself, and this needs to be replaced.

Terrestrial Vertebrates: During this period we process the images from Array # 2 and we removed the cameras from Array # 1. During image processing of the array # 1 (which was sampled after the array # 2) we find a problem in the DeskTeam. Sometimes the program combines sequences of photos from different cameras. It can generates species misidentification and wrong information in the pictures. To solve this problem, we had to process one by one, without processing groups of images. We are still looking for errors in processed images of the first sampling in 2011.
