Mar State Park, São Paulo, Brazil


(2014-2015). This project aims to assess the water balance in the Serra do Mar State Park the watershed (São Paulo) using the hydrological model SOCONT. The altitude of the basin varies between 1050 and 1228 meters above sea level and the total watershed area is about 56.04 ha. The catchment water balance evaluation will allow to understand the key processes of the hydrologic cycle, especially under land use changes and climate changing conditions for tropical forest.
