Solo

 

a river in Indonesia, the largest river on the island of Java. Approximately 540 km long, the river drains an area of about 17,000 sq km. It originates on the slopes of the Lawu and Merapi volcanoes and flows primarily through a wide and often marshy valley. In its lower course the river meanders sharply and empties into the Java Sea. High water occurs from October through May and causes heavy flooding. The Solo is navigable for 200 km; the lower course has been straightened and canalized. The river valley is densely populated and cultivated. The cities of Solo (former name Surakarta), Cepu, and Bojonegoro are on the Solo. In the period 1931–33 remains of Palaeonthropus (Solo man) were found on the riverbank at the village of Ngandong.

(1) In a musical work written for more than one voice, a part or section having special melodic expressiveness and significance and performed by a single singer or instrumentalist (in some instances, by several musicians).

No Estado de MG, a densidade do solo media das amostras coletadas foi de 1,17, 1,16 e 1,08 Mg [m.sup.-3] para as camadas superficial, intermediaria e inferior do perfil dos solos irrigados amostrados, respectivamente (Figura 3).
Com excecao das areas amostradas em MG, em que os valores de densidade do solo da camada superficial e intermediaria nao diferiram estatisticamente, os solos amostrados apresentaram valores de densidade do solo mais elevados na camada superficial, diferindo estatisticamente das demais camadas do perfil do solo (Figura 3); a maior densidade do solo na camada superficial pode ser explicada pelo maior trafego de maquinas e equipamentos necessarios ao manejo do solo e das culturas e ao pisoteio de animais nas areas em que se utiliza a integracao lavoura-pecuaria, o que, entretanto nao se observou em MG devido, possivelmente, ao revolvimento do solo das areas amostradas, realizado no cultivo anterior.
