Crustal and Metallogenetic Evolution

Crustal and Metallogenetic Evolution

This group is dedicated to the recreation of the geological evolution of the Brazilian territory and adjacent areas, on a regional and local scale, with the aim of understanding the factors that control the formation of mineral deposits, thereby enabling them to define genetic models capable of subsidising mineral exploration.

Interdisciplinarity and Science of the Earth System as Bases for Basic Education

The research group contributes to the development of methodologies for training teachers in the area of Geosciences. The group is backed by projects financed by a number of research development agencies. The research is based on the teaching and learning of systemic dynamics associated with geological time to study the planet in an integrated manner, consisting of the teaching of Geosciences, curriculum and teacher training.

Paleoenvironmental and environmental studies

Paleoenvironmental and environmental studies

The research group aims to conduct integrated studies geared to developing models that help us understand the environment, the dynamics of the same in relation to the evolution of terrestrial biota and its interaction with the physical environment. Moreover, this group strives to understand the transformations in relation to anthropic interference.
