Abstract
The present study proposes a diagnosis of the conditions and impacts on estuarine beaches of the Amazonian coast based on the application of the DPSIR (Driving Forces, Pressures, State, Impact, Responses) model, which identifies the natural and anthropogenic drivers affecting the environment. Natural drivers are related primarily to the accentuated hydrodynamic processes, high rainfall and fluvial discharge. The anthropogenic driver is related to the lack of planning for beach development. These...
