Analysis of remote sensing images and aerial photographs for the identification and study of evolution of inadequate waste disposal sites

Abstract:

One of the main problems Brazil faces in solid waste management is the existence of dumps, which must be closed. For the shutdown process, it is necessary to carry out the investigation of contamination, which requires knowledge of the history of these sites. This study is often hampered by the lack of past records on waste disposal activities in these places, especially when they are very old. In this context, the analysis of multi-temporal remote sensing images and aerial photographs is an interesting tool for the identification of the development of inadequate waste disposal sites. In the present study, these techniques were used to assess former dumps of two municipalities in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The analysis comprised satellite images and aerial photographs between the decades of 1960 and 2010. They enabled the obtainment of information on the progress of activities in the dumps and their surroundings, on how the waste disposal occurred, and on the end of operations and process of revegetation. Thus, the analysis of multi-temporal remote sensing images and aerial photographs allowed a better interpretation of posterior environmental assessment data, through the knowledge of the context in which these are inserted.
