Based in climatic and environmental multi-records is intended to realize the paleoclimatic reconstruction of Center-west of Brazil, with the integrate of stalagmite and crust carbonate records of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul states that will be compared with the marine records in site of influence the La Plata river. The peleoclimatic reconstruction of Center-west of Brazil, takes into account the integration of geochemistry records of stalagmites and carbonate crust and aims investigate the South America Monsoon System (SAMS) in decadal to multidecadal scale. Also intended to extended to time and regional range of the reconstructions of South America from the last 30 thousand years based in isotopic analysis and trace elements. The record obtained will be compared with lacustrine e oceanic sedimentary records with objective of the reconstruct the climate changes of South America. With the hydrogeochemistry and isotopic monitoring of rain and karst water, seeks understand the mechanism that acting on concentration of trace elements and isotopic composition of the speleothems.
