Evaluation of the environmental quality of forest remnants in the hydrographic basins of the municipality of Campinas/SP


The areas of remaining vegetation are part of the natural life support systems and present important functions, both aesthetic and social when ecological, even when inserted in the urban context. In this context, one of the main ecological functions carried out by them is to contribute to the mitigation of environmental impacts resulting from the urbanization process, for example by improving the urban climate, by maintaining the milder temperatures and guaranteeing greater thermal comfort population; contribution to the equilibrium of the humidity index and attenuation of air pollution through the adsorption of pollutant particles; aid in the quantity and quality of water available, through the promotion of interception of rainwater, reduction of runoff and control of erosion processes; aid in the processes of nutrient cycling and accumulation and decomposition of organic matter and etc. Therefore, the present project aims to identify, map and determine the environmental quality of the remaining forest areas present in the hydrographic basins, typically urbanized, covered by the municipality of Campinas / SP. To do so, they will be evaluated according to relevant environmental indicators and landscape metrics analyzes, such as area, nuclear area, connectivity, land use and land use, among others. It will also be used geoprocessing techniques, remote sensing and statistical analysis as auxiliary instruments. In this way, with the results obtained, the project aims to act as an aid to environmental and urban management in the city of Campinas, allowing for discussions and comparisons between all the hydrographic basins present in the municipality, with regard to forest remnants, identifying the potentialities and weaknesses (AU)
