The Forest Hydrology Laboratory (LHF) aims to contribute to the understanding of the relationship between forests and water and how forest management can influence these relationships. Therefore, conducts studies to identify the effects of forestry activities on the hydrological functioning of watersheds. These studies also involve monitoring and improvement of hydrological indicators that serve as reference in the search for good management.
