Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Andres Felipe Carvajal Diaz, Fernando Afanador Franco
In this research the characterization of the abiotic environment located in the south area of the Cartagena (Colombia) bay was carried out. This work includes analysis for: the geologic characteristics (tectonics , regional geology), submarine geomorphology, marine sedimentology and marine geotechnics. The used tools to accomplish the complete characterization were secondary data collection, fieldwork, use of remote sensors and spatial analysis functions of Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
