Laje de Santos (initial + expansion in sequence)
March/2009 – improvement in harmonization techniques with the application in marine environment surrounding the main island of Laje de Santos.
The region suffered effects of coral bleaching in 1998 and 2001 due to water excess temperature increased.
It also has the occurrences of thermocline in over 10 meters underwater, which had been causing some damage by cold excess (13º C to 15º C).
The biotic level recorded in the recognitions of marine environment were ranging from zero to +30.
The yellow line on the map below demarcates the limits region which has been harmonized:
Expansion of the harmonized region:
On our visit in late July/2010, we were excited by the overall look of vitality shown by the corals and marine biodiversity.
The area expansion will help the plankton proliferation and so the migration process for the reproduction among regions.
We found some coral bleaching few instances, possibly due to corals who were already with too advanced imbalance.
Some recorded photos of the corals status on the occasion of our visit in July/2010 are available at:
We will continue to include in the link above the pictures of our upcoming visits or that will be transferred by other divers who are used to taking pictures from marine life in Laje de Santos.
We expand the region including a damping zone and areas such as Calhaus in the harmonization. The yellow line on the map below demarcates the new limits of the region which has been harmonized:
