“…The Mortes River basin is located in areas with a predominance of granitic and gneiss crystalline basement rocks, covered by a thick layer of regolith, which is very susceptible to gully erosion (Morais et al, 2004). A significant portion of the basin is compromised by inadequate agricultural management and by roads improperly constructed, from mining activities with the presence of gullies and rills, which present a greater potential for sediment production (Curi et al, 1994;Sampaio et al, 2015). Once the sediments are delivered to watercourses, they are responsible for the siltation of rivers, lakes, and reservoirs.…”
