The Role of UNESCO Global Geoparks in Promoting Geosciences Education for Sustainability

Maria Manuela Catana, José B. Brilha. The Role of UNESCO Global Geoparks in Promoting Geosciences Education for Sustainability. Following the establishment in 2000 of the first geoparks, the role of UNESCO Global Geoparks (UGGps) in geoscience education for sustainability needs to be characterized and understood. This is particularly relevant because education is one of the three main pillars of UGGps. ...

Numerical study of the seasonal thermal and gas regimes of the large artificial reservoir in Western Europe using LAKE2.0 model

Iakunin, M., Stepanenko, V., Salgado, R., Potes, M., Penha, A., Novais, M. H., and Rodrigues, G. The Alqueva reservoir (southeast of Portugal) being the largest artificial lake in Western Europe and strategic freshwater supply in the region is of scientific interest in terms of monitoring and maintaining the quality and quantity of water and its impact ...

Public Understanding on Geoconservation Strategies at the Passagem das Pedras Geosite, Paraíba (Brazil): Contribution to the Rio do Peixe Geopark Proposal

Wellington Francisco Sá dos Santos; Ismar de Souza Carvalho; José Brilha. The Rio do Peixe basin, which is developed during the Lower Cretaceous, consists of the Sousa, Uiraúna-Brejo das Freiras, Pombal and Vertentes sub-basins. They have abundant ichnofauna represented by dinosaur tracks of theropods, sauropods and ornithopods, these being the main objects of geological heritage in the region. The majority of palaeontological sites ...

Combined experimental and numerical determination of the asymmetry factor of scattering phase functions in porous volumetric solar receivers

Germilly Barreto, Paulo Canhoto, Manuel Collares-Pereira. Modelling of solar radiation propagation and absorption in porous media is a crucial part in the modelling of porous volumetric receivers in concentrated solar power (CSP) plants. The radiative properties of the porous media should be known in detail for accurate receiver modelling. In this work, an experimental study and ...
