ANALYZING EROSION PRONE AREAS IN POWER LINE PROJECTS
Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Luiz Souza Filho
Analyses of areas with susceptibility to erosion in big projects emerge as priority factor where the possibility of landslides and sediment buildup are detrimental to the life of these works besides causing many environmental problems. At the same time, GIS and remote sensing are increasingly focused on the analysis and management of environmental systems. Thus, this paper aims to address the main features and elements related to the processing of spatial data and its use in GIS, to identify areas susceptible to erosion, making use of the Universal Soil Losses Equation - USLE. The data sources used were obtained freely from official government and sources information obtained in Eletrobras Furnas Company. As a practical example, was made an analysis of Anta/Simplicio/Rocha Lećo“s line. As a result, the proposed procedure proposes the creation of a thematic map to identifying the areas of more or less prone to erosion.
