Abstract: we present the status and plans of the angra project, a new reactor neutrino oscillation experiment, proposed to be built in brazil at the angra dos reis nuclear complex. this experiment is aimed to measure q13, the last unknown of the three neutrino mixing angles. we propose a high sensitivity multi-detector experiment, able to reach a sensitivity to antineutrino disappearance down to sin2 2q13 = 0.006 in a three years running period, by combining a high luminosity design, very low background from cosmic rays and careful control of systematic errors. we also intend to explore the possibility to use the neutrino detector for purposes of safeguards and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

World Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology (WJNST) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/wjnst.2016.64027
Abstract: The presence of a potentially hazardous facility in a community demands several safety procedures. Bringing risk communication among those actions may help the population that lives near the facility feel more confident and have the required knowledge on how to behave in an emergency situation. A research performed in Angra dos Reis, RJ, Brazil, where a nuclear power plant is located, shows that there is a lack of information and awareness about the emergency plan.

Revista Brasileira de Zoologia , 1988, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-81751988000100011
Abstract: in order to study the vertical distribution of teredinidae at angra dos reis, state of rio de janeiro, brazil, 30 collectors of wood sheets (araucária sp.) were submerged (10 at each depth) at 0,2, 2 and 4 m, respectively. among the species collected, lyrodus floridanus was the only one that did not whow significant variation in number of individuals in relation to depth. all the other species were unaffected, in number of individuals, by the different depths tested.

Abstract: the city of angra dos reis presents human cases of american cutaneous leishmaniasis since 1945. phlebotomine surveys in 1978 had disclosed the presence of nyssomyia intermedia and the first notification of lutzomyia longipalpis in rio de janeiro, ilha grande, angra dos reis. in august of 2002 the first canine case of visceral leishmaniasis in the ilha grande, angra dos reis was notified. surveys of phlebotomines in the peridomiciliary areas, in the period of november, 2002, through may, 2003, in four localities of angra dos reis, resulted in 12,554 specimens belonging to nine species: brumptomyia sp. nyssomyia intermedia, migonemyia migonei, micropygomyia schreiberi, pintomyia fischeri, psychodopygus davisi, psychodopygus ayrosai, evandromyia tupinambay, psathyromyia pelloni. nyssomyia intermedia was predominant in all localities, followed by m. migonei. the main vector of the avl, l. longipalpis, was not detected in the localities, including their surroundings, where an infected dog inhabited.

Abstract: the floristic composition and natural regeneration under a 7-year-old legume tree plantation (acacia auriculiformis, a. mangium e mimosa tenuiflora) was investigated in comparing with a secondary forest 200 m away at angra dos reis, rj. the hillside was divided in 3 parts following the slope. the lower part of the hillside was the nearest to the natural forest remnant. in 12 plots with 200 m2 each, 4 of them in each section of the hillside, 699 plants larger then 40 cm height were observed, distributed in 25 families and 50 species. the families with the most individuals were meliaceae (298), euphorbiaceae (70), piperaceae (64) and lauraceae (41). the families with the most species were solanaceae (7), melastomataceae (5) and myrtaceae (5). none of the legume species introduced in the area had produced natural regeneration. the evolution of natural succession acurred with a gradient in function of the slope and distance of the remnant natural forest. the higher density of individuals and species richness were found in the lowest part of the hillside.

Abstract: thirty-six morphotypes of insect galls were recorded for the first time in the reserva biológica estadual da praia do sul (ilha grande, angra dos reis, rj), being the majority of them comprised of leaf galls (64%). stem and bud galls were also found (25 and 14%, respectively). myrtaceae were the plant family with the greatest richness of insect galls. mikania sp. (asteraceae) and guapira opposita (nyctaginaceae) were the super host plant species. the most important galling group was the cecidomyiidae (diptera), responsible for 75% of the gall morphotypes. hemipteran and lepidopteran galls were also recorded (11 and 2.8%, respectively).

The outlook concerning the occurrence of industrial accidents has led to the implementation of response systems based on geoprocessing tools, which are widely adopted in emergency for such ventures, since they have helped and served as a support for decision making, as well as for the preparation of guidelines aimed at managing emergencies. Nuclear power plants, because they constitute types of industrial activities that present dangerous conditions and attention regarding security are characterized as hazardous, especially due to consequences that occurred from large accidents— such as Chernobyl (1986) and Fukushima (2011)—highlighting the importance to its negative impacts, since the occurrence of accidents at nuclear power plants may affect surrounding areas, thus exposing a set of elements that are part of the environmental dynamics that integrates the catchment area where this type of plant is situated. In this way, through an integrated view of the region where the nuclear complex is located in Angra dos Reis City (Rio de Janeiro State) and, also, by aggregating information that portray the geobiophysical reality of its surroundings, several elements were incorporated into a database developed in a virtual environment, in which was produced a geographic information system (GIS) that presents a complex of variables that, once considered, can enhance various analysis in order to support emergency situations and planning, as well as guidelines that help define actions from the occurrence of accidental events at the nuclear plant.

Abstract: The Ilha Grande is situated at the intersection of the parallels 23°05' and 23°14' degrees Southlatitude with the meridians 44°05' and 44°23' West longitude, in Angra dos Reis county, at the Riode Janeiro state Southern coast. It has approximately 193Km2 and has two districts, Ara atiba,situated at the western portion whose main villa of residents is Provetá, and Abra o, situated atthe East portion where detaches as the main village the Vila de Abra o. The Vila de Abra o isconsidered the “capital” of the Ilha Grande, where arrive and alter on a daily basis, inhabitants,visitors, public managers, researchers and environmental defenders. The present article considersenvironmental impacts in the Vila de Abra o as important vectors in the construction of managementprocess and territorial planning, mainly after the Island’s change of function - from federal prison(Instituto Penal Candido Mendes) and environmental conservation area it becomes the headoffice of the Centro de Estudos Ambientais e Desenvolvimento Sustentável, a State University ofRio de Janeiro (UERJ) unit, which has both an institutional and environmental conservation use,however framed in touristic activity growth context.
