Abstract

This work shows a correlation between the GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) data and the geochemical distribution of the selected soil profiles in the Formoso river basin, to show the correlation between the vertical distribution of the soil units and the GPR profile. This interpretation is important to easily demonstrate the evolution of these important geomorphological units with the increase in human activities in the cerrado. Thus, it is extremely important to implement the necessary mechanisms to protect these environments as water sources in the region. This research can contribute to the creation of protected areas of sustainable use, specifically areas of ecological interest (ARIE) for the protection of paths considered strategic for the conservation of soil and water.
