The response of ichthyoplankton assemblage to the oil spill in the coastal region of Brazil Northeaster on August 2019 was investigated using data of before and after spill from plankton survey off the coast of Salvador. Differences in fish egg and larvae density was evident in all samples collected in the continental shelf of Salvador, after oil s...

The São Francisco River is the fourth longest river in South America and one of the most regulated. Severe coastal erosion has affected the delta shoreline since 1985, leading to the complete destruction of Cabeço village between 1997 and 1999. In this study, we mapped and radiocarbon dated the beach ridge sets occurring on the delta plain and perf...

Submarine canyons play a major role in sediment transfer to the deep sea. When connected with fluvial systems, they can produce large submarine fans, whose sandy bodies have a high potential as petroleum reservoirs. Although canyon-river connections are common on passive margins during lowstands, they are rare during highstands. So far, the only ca...

The continental shelf adjacent to the municipality of Salvador (CSS), state of Bahia, Brazil, is one of the narrowest in the world (8 km) although it is located in a passive margin. This shelf is also shallow, with low accommodation space and sediment input. During the Quaternary, the area was exposed most of the time to subaerial conditions. This...

Processos de subsidência são caracterizados pelo movimento de uma porção da superfície da Terra na qual resulta no rebaixamento do terreno. Os ambientes sedimentares deposicionais, como é o caso dos deltas, são propensos à subsidência devido à compactação de sedimentos. O objetivo principal deste trabalho é o desenvolvimento de um projeto geométric...

O perfil longitudinal típico dos grandes rios é côncavo entre a nascente e a foz. Desvios deste padrão típico com a presença de quebras de declive indicam a atuação de processos tectônicos, eustáticos ou variações litológicas no leito do rio. O presente estudo incide no sector médio do rio São Francisco, o quarto maior rio da América do Sul. Este r...

O delta do rio São Francisco é uma planície arenosa de idade quaternária construída em um baixo estrutural da bacia de Sergipe-Alagoas, conhecido como Baixo do São Francisco. O limite interno do delta do São rancisco é marcado por escarpas retilíneas, que o separam da Formação Barreiras adjacente e possuem traçado coincidente com importantes falhas...
Presentation
Full-text available
The shallow (<60m) and narrow (<40km) shelf off east-northeast Brazil makes it difficult to investigate the effects of the last eustatic sea-level rise in the development of the brazilian deltas. In addition, high wave energy results in greater shear stress at the bottom, precluding the development of deltaic clinoforms exhibiting a classical sigmo...

The São Francisco River delta is a Quaternary sandy plain built on a structural low of the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin, known as the São Francisco Low. The inner limit of the São Francisco River delta is defined by rectilinear cliffs between the delta plain and the Barreiras Formation, which coincide with important faults delimiting the São Francisco Low...

Chapter
The coastline of the State of Paraíba is approximately 145 km long. The sediment deficient character of this coast, with reduced sediment input, has resulted in long-term shoreline retreat. As a consequence, erosion of local sediment sources, such as the coarse grained Barreiras Formation, provided most of the sediment to the shoreline. These aspec...
Chapter
The beaches of Sergipe and Alagoas illustrate the role of geological inheritance and the effect of sediment grain size in controlling beach morphodynamics. Overall, under the same wave energy levels, beaches located on prograding sections of the coast have finer sediments and are dissipative, whereas on coastal sections starved of sediments the san...
Chapter
The state of Bahia with approximately 1000 km of shoreline, a great heterogeneity of exposed rock types and subjected to varying degrees of sediment supply allowed us to investigate the controls exerted by these factors in determining the beach types. The modal morphodynamic states of the beaches of Bahia is dominantly controlled by sediment grain...

The Discovery Coast was the first landscape sighted by Portuguese explorers when they arrived in Brazil in 1500. This region’s geomorphology is marked by the predominance of coastal tablelands, sustained by Miocene sediments of the Barreiras Formation, which were primarily deposited in tidal plains, tidal channels, and braided river systems. These...
