Abstract:Knowing the geological evolution of Earth surface allows identifying various natural attractions (biotic and abiotic). It makes possible the use of the most differentiated resources for the practice of tourism. The Arcos-Pains Karst Region has excellent potential for geotourism use. Examples of geosites include the Santuario and Brega Caves, the Dry Valley in the Corumbá region, and the Mastodonte Cave, where fossils of the Haplomastodon waringi mastodon species were found. However, public investment policies aiming at the environmental preservation of this heritage are still minimal or absent. The region also suffers tremendous anthropic pressure due to the extraction and processing of limestone, agribusiness, urban expansion and informal tourism. The process of inventorying and quantifying geosites is an essential tool for defining geoconservation strategies since it is not possible to protect all the geodiversity of the planet. The attributes analysed should integrate several criteria that take into account the intrinsic characteristics of each geosite, its potential use and the level of protection required. Regarding this research, the objective is approaching karst and speleological heritage, intending to define geosites for scientific, educational and tourist use at the Arcos-Pains Karst Region. The purpose of the inventory is to develop a geotourism project that provides essential information for better territorial management. It is also intended to assist environmental agencies in the enterprises’ environmental licensing processes installed in the region. Among the thirty-five (35) sites evaluated, eleven (11) presented above-average use-values in all categories analysed. Also, they presented national relevance and were classified as geosites. In addition to these, another sixteen (16) sites scored sufficiently to be categorised with national relevance. Within the geosites, one (1) was of international relevance: the São Francisco River Canyon. Considering the results, it is essential to deepen the research regarding karst dynamics to equalise geodiversity preservation while allowing its use to benefit society.

Title:Disertacija
Abstract:Poznavanje geološkega razvoja površja zemlje omogoča prepoznavanje raznovrstnih naravnih znamenitosti (biotskih in abiotskih), kar dopušča uporabo najrazličnejših virov v turistične namene. Regija Arcos-Pains krasa ima izjemen potencial za geoturizem. Primeri geoloških znamenitosti (»geosites«) vključujejo jami Santuario in Brega, Suho dolino v regiji Corumbá in jamo Mastodonte, kjer so bili najdeni fosili mastodona vrste Haplomastodon waringi. Po drugi strani pa so politike javnih naložb v varstvo te naravne dediščine še vedno neodločne, saj je ta regija tudi pod velikim antropogenim pritiskom zaradi pridobivanja in predelave apnenca, agroživilske industrije, širitve urbanih območij in neformalnega turizma. Proces popisovanja in kvantificiranja geoloških znamenitosti je temeljno orodje za določanje geokonservatorskih strategij, saj ne moremo zaščititi vse geodiverzitete planeta. Analizirani atributi bi morali vključevati več kriterijev, ki upoštevajo notranje značilnosti posamezne geološke znamenitosti, njeno morebitno uporabo in potrebno raven zaščite. Cilj te raziskave je preučiti kraško in jamarsko dediščino ter opredeliti geološke znamenitosti za uporabo v znanstvene, izobraževalne in turistične namene. Raziskava zajema regijo Arcos-Pains krasa. Namen tega popisa je razviti geoturistični projekt, ki bi nudil subvencije za boljše upravljanje teritorija in pomagal Agenciji za okolje pri izdajanju okoljskih dovoljenj podjetjem s sedežem v regiji. Med petintridesetimi (35) ocenjenimi znamenitostmi jih je enajst (11) doseglo nadpovprečne vrednosti v vseh analiziranih kategorijah. Poleg tega so tudi nacionalnega pomena in so bile uvrščene med geološke znamenitosti. Poleg teh je še šestnajst (16) znamenitosti doseglo dovolj točk, da so bile kategorizirane kot znamenitosti nacionalnega pomena. Ena (1) od geoloških znamenitosti je mednarodnega pomena: kanjon reke São Francisco. Sodeč po rezultatih, moramo poglobiti raziskovanje dinamike tega krasa, da bi poenotili ohranjanje geodiverzitete in hkrati omogočili njeno rabo v korist družbe.
