Abstract

The Tucuruí Hydro-Power Complex reservoir, Pará State, Amazon Region-Brazil, as well as other reservoirs is subject to natural alterations and anthropogenic activities which in turn affect the environmental balance. The aim of this work was to verify if geostatistical models can be used in the spatial-temporal evaluation of water quality in reservoirs. The Surfer 13® software was used to interpolate the spatial distribution of data, in two years of surface water physicochemical parameters were evaluated in sixteen sampling stations. The results of the isotopic maps showed low concentrations of DO at station C1 in the Intermediate Period 2 (summer-winter), high concentration of COD at station MP in the Intermediate Period 1 (winter-summer) and increased acidity at stations C1 and C2 in summer, suggesting that the relationship between the Tucuruí Hydro-Power Complex and farming activities in the region cause impacts on the aquatic ecosystem along the reservoir.
