Carlos Alberto Vettorazzi is Agronomist by ESALQ / USP (1979), where he also achieved his master's degree (1985) and doctorate (1988). He is retired since April, 2017, by the Department of Biosystems Engineering (former Rural Engineering), ESALQ / USP, area of Land Surveying and Geoprocessing, where he worked since March,1980. In 1993 and 1994 he was Visiting Scientist of the Department of Agronomy at Purdue University, USA. His main research lines were always related to applications of Geotechnologies in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The general objective of this study is to investigate the effects of land use in forest fragments in the basin of the river Corumbataí (SP). We will use methods of remote sensing (by means of classification of satellite images) and geographical information systems on ground cover, structured interviews and research in databases for the collection and organization of data on land use. Fo...
This proposal has the objective of studying sampling methods for inventorying arboreal species in three biomas in the state of São Paulo, Brazil: Dense Humid Forest, Semi Deciduous Forest and Cerrado (Arboreal Savana). Each selected area will be analysed through the imagery of Landsat 7 or CBERS satellite, multispectral videography (blue, red and near infrared bands) and field survey. L...
The conversion of natural ecosystems in urban areas and farmlands is a major cause of environmental degradation and the adverse impacts on natural resources. The native vegetation in watersheds plays an important role for the conservation of water resources, and seen the growing demand for water and concern about its future availability, studies on the relationship of how the forest con...
Today's greatest challenge is to meet growing demands for raw materials in a responsible manner. Therefore, the world researches are lead to the development and transfer of technologies which are able to establish systems of sustainable production. In Brazil, historically the different uses and covers of the land have been encouraging changes in the standards of covering and forest dive...

Land cover and land management practices have been regarded as the key factors behind alterations in the hydrological system, which lead to the change in runoff as well as in the water quality. Forest cover can play an important role on the biogeochemical cycles in watersheds. Models have long been used in water resources management to guide decision-making and improve understanding of ...
