Avulsive rivers in the hydrology of the pantanal wetland
(Handbook of Environmental Chemistry, 2016-01-01) [Capítulo de livro]
This chapter presents and discusses the avulsive nature of the Pantanal rivers and shows how the ever-changing drainage network influences the surface hydrology and ecology. Besides, the systemic portrait here outlined ...
CALCULATING BEDLOAD TRANSPORT IN RIVERS: CONCEPTS, CALCULUS ROUTINES AND APPLICATION
(Revista Brasileira De Geomorfologia, 2017-10-01) [Artigo]
Rivers are immensely important to human activities such as water supply, navigation, energy generation, and agriculture. They are also an important morphodynamic agent of erosion, transport and deposition. Their capacity ...
Limnogeology in Brazil's "forgotten wilderness": a synthesis from the large floodplain lakes of the Pantanal
(Journal of Paleolimnology, 2011-08-01) [Artigo]
Sediment records from floodplain lakes have a large and commonly untapped potential for inferring wetland response to global change. The Brazilian Pantanal is a vast, seasonally inundated savanna floodplain system controlled ...
Lacustrine records of Holocene flood pulse dynamics in the Upper Paraguay River watershed (Pantanal wetlands, Brazil)
(Quaternary Research, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
The Pantanal is the world's largest tropical wetland and a biodiversity hotspot, yet its response to Quaternary environmental change is unclear. To address this problem, sediment cores from shallow lakes connected to the ...
Erosion rates and landscape evolution of the lowlands of the Upper Paraguay river basin (Brazil) from cosmogenic Be-10
(Geomorphology, 2015-04-01) [Artigo]
The importance of Earth's low sloping areas in regard to global erosion and sediment fluxes has been widely and vigorously debated. It is a crucial area of research to elucidate geologically meaningful rates of ...
