: Macro-geomorphologic analysis of the Araguaia River basin, Brazil Thiago Morato de Carvalho, Universidade Federal de Goiás, GO, email@example.com (Apresentador / Presenting)
A geomorphologic/morphometric study of the whole Araguaia River Basin (370,000 km2) was carried out using the SLAR system, radar of lateral view. The morphological features of the terrain were highlighted in order to both analyze and interpret the physical environment of the region using the SRTM products. For editing were used the ENVI software, specialized for environmental analyses with the use of remote sensing. The basic products obtained were the following maps: shaded image, slope, hipsometric, geologic, geomorphologic and hydrology. The results give a framework for a better interpretation of both the geology and the geomorphology of the Araguaia River Basin, by providing perspectives of the terrain and 3D models, as well as to subsidy the hydro-geomorphologic studies at present being developed at the Laboratory of Geology and Physical Geography of the Federal University of Goiás.
