Work experience
Desertification is one of the modalities concerning the alterations of the natural conditions be it a result of large scale climatic changes or a product of the relationship between society and nature included, in this case, among the object of Ecogeography._x000D_
The major interest is on the tropical zone and in it the Brazilian semi-arid region that we have studied and exposed as an example, pointing out and analysing its most critical areas._x000D_
We have applied the statistical methodology of the temporal series, being submitted to the calculations of moving averages or linear filtration to the Spectral analysis of Fourier and to the evaluation of the interannual variability, seeking tendences, relevant ciclicities and coefficient of variations.
