Soil Degradation and Soil Rehabilitation Treatments (Monte Faro)

Tutors: Cristina Fernández (CIF Lourizán), Otilia Reyes (USC), Pablo Rios (USC Student delegate) and Madalena João Dias (ULisboa Student delegate).


The activity will take place in Monte Faro (Chantada), which was affected by a wildfire of 320 ha in October 2017.

In this short training course we will explain how the extinction works were carried out. We will learn to recognize the environmental impacts of the fire on vegetation, water and soil. We will explain the different measures to protect the soil and waters and recover the ecosystem. The group will carried out different practical activities and discuss the efficiencies of the training materials developed.
