Índice Anual de Disponibilidade Hídrica. Validação com recurso a Deteção Remota (ilha Terceira, Açores).
Presentation
Full-text available
Na ausência de interferência humana, as zonas de altitude (acima dos 500 m) dos Açores seriam ocupadas quase exclusivamente por turfeiras. Na ilha Terceira estas ocupam 2766 ha, muito abaixo da sua área potencial de cerca de 8035 ha. A sua principal ameaça é o uso inadequado do solo, com a transformação de grandes áreas de turfeiras em pastagens e/...

Neste estudo foram selecionadas turfeiras degradadas pelo pastoreio onde esta atividade cessou e deram início processos de sucessão regenerativa. Para comparação foram igualmente selecionadas turfeiras naturais. Pretendemos compreender as dinâmicas ao longo da sucessão secundária, utilizando indicadores como estrutura, flora, vegetação, acumulação...

Given the high precipitation verified in the Azores, peatlands, as water retention structures, are promoters of landscape balance, reducing the frequency of major events such as landslides. However, these ecosystems face increased land-use change disturbances that are placing the future security of these critical ecosystem services in doubt. This s...

The Criação do Filipe peatland complex on Terceira Island (Azores) includes a fragmented network of interconnected peatlands that have persisted over time within an agriculture-dominated landscape. This study identifies a number of human pressures including cattle grazing in and around the mire, a high population density of rabbits, high cover of e...

Article
The objective is to estimate the actual and potential hydrological services provided by the peatlands of Flores and Terceira islands. Peatlands were identified through the distribution of Sphagnum, obtained by a spectral signature from satellite image analysis. The results show an actual distribution of natural peatlands of 2766 and 2414 ha, for Te...

The WETREST project objectives were to create instruments for the restoration of peatlands into conditions of greater appreciation of their regulatory and biodiversity capacities. This project arose from a growing demand for the definition of peatlands restoration strategies for Terceira, as these represent 52% of RAMSAR and are extremely important...

Dias (1996) presented an interpretive model that suggests an evolution of the different types of Azorean peat bogs. We intent to prove that they have different stocks of peat, with different reserves of carbon, depending on the state of naturalness and perturbation. In this study we selected eight peat bogs, with various typologies and states of na...
