The 1970s and 1980s saw the development of unprecedented and unregulated private and public investments in well-drilling that served to irrigate flat and mechanizable
lands on both coastal lowlands and the dry upper plateaux of the country below terraced escarpments.
As will be shown below, the study began in 2008 because this is the first year that one of the active fire products used was available and ended in 2014 because in this year pre-harvest burning should end in mechanizable areas of the study area.
However, considering the negative impacts of biomass burning over the environment and over health, the Law 11,241, approved in Sao Paulo state in 2002, established a schedule for banning pre-harvest burning, setting as deadline the year 2021 for mechanizable areas (slope [less than or equal to] 12%) and 2031 for non-mechanizable areas (slope > 12%) (Bordonal et al., 2013).
11.241, of September 19, 2002, was approved regarding the gradual elimination of sugarcane burning: until 2021 in mechanizable
areas and in non-mechanizable areas by 2031.
can be read as the result of the British crafts revival's attempt to differentiate the meaning of artisanship from material, and thus potentially mechanizable
, practices" (142).
In consequence, our approach enables a high level of reusability and dynamic adaptability and features mechanizable
specification composition, refinement and code generation.
The absence of any mechanizable
algorithm controlling Xenakis's modifications "to taste" in Nomos Alpha and other pieces distinguishes them aesthetically from the products of his computer program.
