Hydrodynamics and sedimentary dynamics at Araçá Bay (São Sebastião Channel): current processes and recent changes

Grant number: 15/00925-0
Support type:Research Grants - Visiting Researcher Grant - International
Duration: April 14, 2015 - July 11, 2015
Field of knowledge:Physical Sciences and Mathematics - Oceanography
Principal Investigator:Javier Alcántara Carrio
Grantee:Javier Alcántara Carrio
Visiting researcher: Rui Pires de Matos Taborda
Visiting researcher institution: Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal
Home Institution: Instituto Oceanográfico (IO). Universidade de São Paulo (USP). São Paulo , SP, Brazil
Associated research grant:11/50317-5 - Biodiversity and functioning of a subtropical coastal ecosystem: a contribution to integrated management , AP.BTA.TEM


The proposed activities for the stay of Dr. Rui Taborda are oriented to strengthen a previous collaboration between the research groups of the University of Lisbon and the Oceanographic Institute (University of São Paulo). This proposal includes the two following teaching activities: the course "Sediment transport mechanics in coastal and shelf environments" to post-graduate students, and a conference to pre-graduate students in Oceanography. Moreover, the stay will be focused in his collaboration in different research projects currently in progress. Thus, Dr. Taborda will collaborate in the Hydrodynamics (module 5) and Sedimentary Dynamics (module 6) of the project "Biodiversity and functioning of a subtropical coastal ecosystem: tools for integrated management - BIOTA/FAPESP - Araçá", including his participation in the core and surface sediments sampling, bathymetric measurements, geomorphological analyses, calibration of the hydrodynamic numerical model, and the combination of all the results to analyze the sediment transport. Dr. Taborda also will collaborate in the project: "Origin and evolution of the prograding infralittoral wedge in the São Sebastião Island (FAPESP 2014/08295-2)", and will participate in a sediment sampling survey on board the oceanographic vessel Alpha Delphini.
