Abstract: Humic substances (HSs) were extracted from samples collected in 4 areas of sediment, water and soil from Patos′ lake - MS. The humic substances from the water were extracted according to Thurman and Malcolm methods (1981) and, those from sediment and soil were extracted as proposed by the International Society of Humic Substances (ISHS). The following spectroscopic techniques were performed in this study: ultraviolet and visible (UV-Vis) and fluorescence emission. The effects of ambient factors as concentration and variations of pH in fluorescence emission of humic substances (fulvic and humic acids) were evaluated. It was observed that the UV-Vis technique and the intensity of emitted fluorescence from humic substances extracted from water has shown linear correlation with the variation of fulvic acid (7.3 the 35.5 mg L-1) and of humic acid (4.8 the 23.9 mg L-1) concentrations, considering just dissolved organic carbon. However, for pH variation (acid, neutral and alkaline media) significant variations were not observed in both, UV-Vis and fluorescence emission techniques.

Abstract: Dissolved organic matter (DOM) can be originated from autochthonous or allochthonous sources, where allochthonous DOM can be from pedogenic sources (humic substances—HSs) or anthropogenicsources (wastewater). The analysis of fluorescence emission, excitation, synchronous or excitation-emission matrix (EEM) have been used to identify the main source or probable contribution of dissolved compounds, such as humic acids (HA), fulvic acids (FA) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from sewage, but does not quantify. Fluorescence emission is a powerful technique to detect and qualify organic dissolved compounds but fails in quantitative aspects. In this work, we propose an in situ method for direct determination of DOC using synchronous fluorescence spectra with independent component analysis (ICA). Well known standard solutions were used for method development and validation. In this work, we show that it is possible to predict the number of independent contributions using an unsupervised method based on iterative Principal Component Analysis and Independent Component Analysis (PCA-ICA) approach over combined matrix results. Within these results it’s also possible to see that with a very small amount of independent components it is possible to describe environmental samples of HA, FA and primary productivity (PP).

Abstract: the humic substances were extracted from sediments, water and soil close to the lagoa dos patos-ms. the characterization was performed through fluorescence emission. in the hss it is possible to see strong indications of incorporation of compounds originating from lignin degradation, confirmed by fluorescence emission (eem and synchronous spectra). these differences observed in hss may be due to tropical regions displaying a great variety of vascular plants and aquatic macrophytes that contribute natural organic matter. the seasonality effect also causes the entrance of pedogenic material and the suspension of sediments by the action of winds.

Abstract: The generation of heliothermal electricity has received increasing attention throughout the world in countries such as Spain, the USA, Germany and many others. In Brazil, this type of energy generation in the form of large projects (above 80 MW) remains unexplored. However, it is known that in the country, there are extensive areas of normal direct irradiation with high intensity and a low seasonality factor, especially in the semiarid regions in Brazil, mainly the North and Northeast of Minas Gerais. Moreover, these Minas Gerais regions have other significant characteristics for the installation of these plants: proximity to transmission lines, flatness, the fact that the respective vegetation is not endangered, a suitable land use profile (availability of land not used in agriculture), low wind speed, low population density, and, most recently, an increase in the demand for local electric energy due to the economic growth above the Brazilian average rate. Furthermore, the introduction of solar plants in that region, due to its distributed nature, will bring development and growth to the region (normally poor) by generating employment and income. This article presents a study of the optimal location of thermoelectric plants in the semiarid regions of Minas Gerais, conducted with Geographical Information System (GIS) technology. GIS consists of a set of specialised resources that allow the manipulation of spatial data, bringing efficiency and agility in the identification of suitable places for the installation of solar plants, while simultaneously enabling the consideration of future scenarios for energy planning, with its respective impact, costs and benefits. The study has identified very promising solar irradiation levels for the electric generation by solar energy, whether thermoelectric or photovoltaic, reaching an annual solar irradiation of 2700 kWh/m2 in the summer and in the range of 2200 - 2400 kWh/m2 on an annual basis. This area includes a vast region in the North/Northeast of the state, which also has continuous and flat regions, with slopes inferior to 3%; in addition, high-quality hydro resources are abundant and well distributed. Furthermore, the Minas Gerais region has few areas with high agriculture profile and reduced quantity of protected units.

Abstract: in perennial agriculture, such as coffee plantation, weeds are controlled by hand, mechanized, and chemical weeding and their combinations. methods that differ in terms of efficiency and costs have been evaluated; however, the influence of these methods on the soil chemical conditions has not been studied, particularly in the long term. this study aimed to evaluate the effect of different weed control methods on soil acidity components of a coffee plantation on a dystroferric red latosol in an experiment installed at epamig experimental station, in s?o sebasti?o do paraíso, mg, brazil. seven weed control treatments were evaluated: mower (mw), coffee tandem disk harrow (td), rotary tiller (rt), post (ch) and pre-emergency herbicide (rh) application, hand hoe (hh) and no weed control (nc). the treatments were evaluated in a randomized block design with three repetitions. soil samples were collected every two years, for each treatment, starting in 1980, in the 0-0.15 to 0.15-0.30 m soil layers and assessed for ph, al3+ (mmolc dm-3), effective acidity (h + al) (mmolc dm-3), and al3+ saturation (%). the hr system increased al3+ content and saturation and the effective acidity and reduced the ph, compared to the other weed control methods, especially the control (nc). contrarily to the rh, the nc treatment resulted in higher ph values, al3+ content and al3+ saturation in both soil layers. the mw treatment was closest to the sc treatment, while the other weed control systems did not differ significantly.

Abstract: Nos trópicos, existe escassez de informa o quanto à contribui o de espécies fúngicas do solo na forma o e estabiliza o de agregados. Este estudo teve como objetivo avaliar o efeito do histórico de uso, níveis de P, de inocula o micorrízica e cultivo com braquiária e soja em casa de vegeta o, sobre o diametro médio geométrico dos agregados (DMG), o índice de flocula o das partículas, a matéria seca das raízes, a coloniza o micorrízica e o comprimento total de hifas, em amostras de Latossolo Vermelho distrófico e Latossolo Vermelho distroférrico. Amostras dos dois solos, previamente cultivados por longos períodos, e de solos n o-cultivados, foram trazidas para casa de vegeta o, submetidas a inocula o, e a dois níveis de P, e ent o cultivadas com braquiária e soja, em dois cultivos sucessivos. Os resultados mostraram que o solo previamente cultivado apresentou menor comprimento total de hifas, menor estabilidade de agregados (menor diametro médio de agregados) e menor índice de flocula o. A inocula o propiciou maior estabilidade dos agregados, e este efeito é condicionado ao nível de P do solo e ao histórico de uso. A presen a de P promoveu, indiretamente, maior agrega o, por propiciar maior comprimento total das hifas e matéria seca de raízes.
