Associated to the scholarship:11/00261-3 - The Quaternary at Pardo river Basin (MG and SP): palaeoenvironmental evidences preserved on soils of floodplains and terraces., BP.DR


This project aims to support the candidate on his pHd thesis expanding the analysis to Fluvial Geomorphology dimension, which field can provide important informations about geomorphologic and geologic processes in the fluvial plain of Pardo River Basin, in Quaternary. For this, it has planned the internship abroad at University of Texas (EUA), at Austin, TX, on Department of Geography and the Environment, with Prof.pHd Edgardo Manoel Latrubesse. The candidate will work with some concepts with aid of supervisor, such as: Pardo River and tributaries profile analysis, Stream Gradient Index, drainage density. This morphometric parameters will be associated with pedofácies analysis, the main aim is to check if the possible drainage anomalies could made identifiable fácies on soils and sediments of the fluvial plain, which point to quaternary environmental changes doesn't linked with climate, but structural factors or tectonic control, using the metodologies previous written from Fluvial Geomorphology. It has planned a internship abroad of six months from September 2012 to March 2013. (AU)
