Associated scholarship(s):16/10014-7 - Denudation rates in the Brazilian southeastern from measuring of cosmogenic isotope 10Be, BE.EP.DR


This project falls within the new possibilities for studies of landscape evolution in the long term, due to advances in the last decades of dating techniques of geological and geomorphological events and estimates denudation rates. In this sense this paper proposes the use of techniques that together cover different time scales to understand the evolution of the relief of the Sapucai River Basin, on the border between the states of Minas Gerais (south) and São Paulo (northeast), location extremely affected by large regional events in southeastern Brazil that occurred after Wealdeniana Reactivation in the Mesozoic, especially the formation of the Cenozoic Rift of Southeastern Brazil, in the Paleogene. Thus, the low-temperature thermochronology by analysis of apatite fission track and systematic (U-Th) / He aims determination of major events modelers landscape on the scale of tens to hundreds of millions of years and their roles in regional topographic compartmentation while the measurement of in-situ production of cosmogenic isotope 10Be, aided morphometric indices applied in the drainage network, check to what extent these large compartments being preserved or destroyed by the dynamics of the Quaternary.
