Introduction
I have been looking at land degradation in the coast of Southern Rio de Janeiro State and Northern São Paulo State, with emphasis on soil erosion and mass movements, leading to geotourism, geodiversity and geoconservartion. To achieve these objectives I have been monitoring rainfall and soil erosion, using experimental stations and automatic raingauges, together with soil sample collection and analysis of physical and chemical properties. Land rehabilitation is also another aim of this project.

Description
  • We have been looking at different types of land degradation, inside conservations units and how to assess these types of degradation and also how to rehabilitate these areas. In addition we have been looking at Geoconservation, geodiversity and geotourism, in different parts of Brazil, where we monitor soil erosion, and rehabilitate some degraded slopes.
