Abstract


The State of Pernambuco is composed of five meso-regions established according to the IBGE (Brazilian Institute of geography and statistics), among them, the metropolitan region of Recife (RMR) that contains 14 municipalities. With urban development and technological, it became increasingly easy study that focuses on the physical characteristics of the environment, such as mulching, soil, hydrological and climatic characteristics. The destruction of plant cover to the urbanization is the factor that starts to trigger adverse processes in any region of the planet. Currently, are widely used techniques of satellite monitoring to track the environmental situation in the regions. With this, this article presents a study that evaluates the environmental and climatic characteristics, using tools such as the water balance and the NDVI for the municipality of Paulista – PE. The results showed that the municipality features compatible with the climate, being a moist spot and with dense vegetation.

Keywords: Municipality, NDVI, satellite monitoring, water balance.
