Thermal stratification in hydroelectric reservoirs

Data: 10 de November de 2016

   The project comes from the philosophy of developing studies and projects of interest for the assessment and integrated management of water resources.

   The study focuses on the ecological conditions determined by the processes of stratification and de-stratification in artificial systems. The objective of the project is to produce and make available a database of the Lajes Reservoir, which will include physical, chemical and biological data. These data will be used by LIGHT SESA to optimize their decision making when it comes to the control and management of the water quality of the tributaries and the reservoir main body.

   Data are obtained from a seasonal monitoring of the physical, chemical and biological variables of the reservoir.
