Implication Of Urban Occupation Patterns In The Natural Infiltration, Ana Paula A.C.C. Seraphim, Maria L. Bezerra, Aline N. Oliveira

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The article aims to contribute to the study of urban form and hydrological impacts relations, especially with regard to a recharge of the aquifers. The focus on the natural water infiltration and recharge of aquifers is due to the similarities between the characteristics of the physical environment conducive to aquifer recharge and urbanization, which lead to urban occupation of recharge areas. To address the proposed objective, the study developed a methodological framework that relates elements of the urban form, intervening factors of urban infiltration and water sensitive urban design guidelines. To accomplish this, recent literature were reviewed in urban drainage ...
