Reservoirs are known as accumulation and exportation of organic and inorganic matter environments which have a great area in Brazil e are considered very important in carbon global cycle. In this regards the main purpose of this project is contribute to carbon dynamic understanding on Itupararanga. Reservoir aiming at the sustainability of Sorocaba River Basin. This reservoir is one of the main springs of Sorocaba's and very important for water resources management in São Paulo state. To reach the objective it will be evaluated: segment the reservoir in compartments, carbon storage, biomass production and composition of phytoplankton, aquatic macrophytes, periphyton, bacterioplankton, zooplankton and benthic communities considering seasonality on hydrological cycle. Besides that, interactions between communities will be evaluated focusing on carbon transference, different forms of carbon will be quantified 50 much in water column as in sediment and the contribution of carbon by the rivers that forms the reservoir. The scientific knowledge generated about carbon cycle in oligo-mesotrophic springs will provide alternatives of an integrated management that guarantee multiple uses for water sources in long term.
