      A regional tectonic feature extending in a km long and 30 to 40 km wide belt, the Holbox Fracture Zone, crosses the flat, karstified terrain of the NE Yucatan Peninsula controlling development of large, elongated poljes. The corridor poljes evolve from solution . “ The Yucatán Peninsula is composed of carbonate and soluble rocks, mostly of limestone, although dolomite and evaporites are also present at different depths.

The purpose of this program is to provide a capstone experience in the fields of Karst Hydrogeology and Geochemistry. The program will take place in Merida, Yucatan State in Mexico. Students will also survey and examine several outcrops of highly permeable karst limestone deposits and groundwater seawater mixing locations along the Yucatan.

Geological setting and hydrogeology of the area. The northwest part of the Yucatán Peninsula (figure 1) is a flat carbonate platform, underlain by several hundred metres thick sub-horizontal Tertiary and Quaternary formations of almost pure carbonate rocks and represent a mature karst formation with a well-developed system of interconnected caverns and conduits (Steinich.

INTRODUCTION. Pleistocene rocks on the Yucatán Peninsula of México crop out along a well-preserved coastal belt, 1 to 10 km wide, that surrounds the entire peninsula (Weidie, ).Late Pleistocene beach ridges (“strand-plain” of Ward, ) and a contemporaneous reef facies (“barrier-reef limestone” of Ward, ) border the Caribbean high coast and were first mapped during the.

In the Riviera Maya on the eastern coast of Quintana Roo, the change in depth is very abrupt compared to northern Yucatan and the Campeche Sound towards the Gulf of Mexico, where the shallow platform extends for several.Extensive flooded cave systems are developed in a zone 8–12 km inland of the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

In plan, the systems comprise cross-linked anastomosing networks composed of horizontal elliptical tubes (which are actively developing where associated with the present fresh water/saline water mixing zone) and canyon-shaped passages.Cenotes (sinkholes) are the most peculiar aquatic ecosystem of the Yucatan Peninsula (SE Mexico).

They are formed by dissolution of the carbonate rock in the karstic platform of the Yucatan.
