WATERWAY, ARGENTINA-BOLIVIA-BRAZIL-PARAGUAY-URUGUAY (1995-1997) — Personally directed
this study in which participated more than 100 professionals working in the five countries where the river Basin
lays (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay). The study included analyses of physical, biological
and social impacts due to dredging (250 passes), disposal of dredged material, fixed works, rock removal, and
blasting along the 3400 km Paraguay-Parana River system. The two-year study included environmental data
acquisition hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, satellite imagery processing, archaeological studies, etc. In
particular, it included :
Visits, site analysis, and descriptions of 22 inland ports of Hidrovia.
Analysis of intermodal traffic patterns and trends, with emphasis in the connectivity
Forecasting of barge traffic within the Hidrovia
Economic impacts related to port and navigation development
