The Site GO-Ja-02 is part of the Serranópolis archaeological site complex and was initially identified by Schmitz and his team between the 1970s and 1980s in the 20th century. This site, constituted by a sandstone shelter from the Botucatu Formation, is interspersed with basalt flows from the Serra Geral Formation. In this perception, the justification for this theme focuses on the fact that this shelter stands out for its almost continuous occupation and for its variability of archaeological materials such as rock records, other materials, aspects of regional geodiversity and burials. In this sense, the main objective of this dissertation is to characterize the local landscape, with the processes of the dynamics of the slope in which the Site GO-Ja-02 is inserted. The question that guides the study is: are there possible elements that pose risks to the conservation of the Site GO-Ja-02? This corpus is also analyzed from the geosite perspective, based on some criteria established by Brilha and by Gray. The methodology consists of three stages: office, field and laboratory, with satellite images, georeferenced data, photographs and soil collections. The results are divided into two moments: the first one concerns the interpretation of the elements present in the slope, focusing on the abitotic factors of the geomorphology, geology and types of soil present in the area, with emphasis on the physical-chemical analysis of the soil collections. The observed dynamics could be synthesized in a topographic profile that illustrates the relations among these elements. In the second moment, the landscape in approach is included within the debate on geodiversity and geoheritage, in which the GO-Ja-02 is also considered as a geosite. In this regard, the soil around is highlighted as a question of major importance, since erosion processes and soil loss were identified nearby the site, what points to possible risks for the conservation of the site.
