Reservoir management: How the scientific community can contribute?

Irineu Bianchini, Marcela Bianchessi Cunha-Santino


Aim: To report possible academic experiences as strategic contributions to help manage reservoirs ensuring multipurpose uses. Methods: In this opinion article, we point out and discuss academic activities that are usually developed to assess environmental studies. Results: Experience shows that various contributions can be highlighted in reservoir management, as well as direct contributions for decision-making of the environmental authorities involved. It is important to mention that all academic activities reported in this article are potentially publishable in scientific journals. Conclusions: Based on our discussion, we identified strong academic orientation (water quality determination, greenhouse gas inventories and water quality simulation using mathematical models, aquatic macrophyte decomposition and growth experiments) for reservoir management.
