CARACTERISTICAS FISICO-QUIMICAS DE LA BAHIA DE SANTA MARTA (AGOSTO 1980 - JULIO 1981)

Gustavo Ramírez T.

Abstract


Physical-chemical conditions have been studied in the Bay of Santa Marta, Colombian Caribbean, from August 1980 to July 1981. The results obtained at nine stations indicate that the surface water is rather homogeneous and of mainly oceanic character. In the period from december to april water temperatures were lowest (<25®C), salinity highest (>36°/oo) and undersaturation with oxigen occured (<91%) these factors together with pH, alcalinity and the variation of water column stability are indicating an upwelling phenomenon in this period and allow the stablishment of an approximated model for the annual cycle the bay.
