SEDIMENTOLOGY OF COASTAL LAGOONS: CIÉNAGA GRANDE DE SANTA MARTA AND CIÉNAGA DE PAJARALES

Gladys Bernal, Julliet Betancur

Abstract


Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta and Ciénaga de Pajarales are the two main lagoons of the marginal lagunar system at the deltaic floodplain of Magdalena river, Caribbean coast of Colombia. A systematic surficial sampling was carried out in such lagoons and Salamanca coast. A sporadic sampling was done in other places of the deltaic plain. This paper presents results about grain size, mineralogy, organic matter contents, CaCOa contents, X ray diffraction and chemical analysis of salts for sediments. Sedimentologic charts, distribution schemes and provenience notes are presented.
