Abstract

This proposal aims increase the cooperation between our research group and the group of Dr. Melanie Kah from University of Vienna /Austria in order to discuss projects in the thematic transport of nanoparticles in soil. During the time that Dr. Melanie Kah will be here, we will strengthen the interaction already started by our research group as well, enabling interaction with other researchers, undergraduate and graduate community of UNESP/Sorocaba. Throughout her visit she will give a seminar and a course at the Graduate Program in Environmental Sciences, and discuss results obtained and to be obtained on the theme of transport nanopesticides in soil.
