... is the product of discharge from the Yucatan aquifer, which consists of a fresh-water lens floating on seawater. This discharge controls the distribution of wetlands. Therefore, vegetation and flooding patterns, mapped with SIR-C imagery, provide valuable information on the hydrogeology of the region. Radar...

Through its influence on Yucatan aquifer characteristics, the ring may provide a link between modern environmental problems and astrogeology. Possible...

... the southwestern terminus of the Yucatán peninsula (Fig. 1). It is underlain by a gulfward-thickening wedge of unconsolidated to semiconsolidated sedimentary rocks of Cenozoic age. These sediments overlie rocks of Mesozoic age and range in thickness from a few meters near their landward limit to more than 10,000 m...

... appear to be analogous to those of the contemporary aquifer in Tertiary carbonate sediments of the Florida and Yucatan Peninsulas. The Lower Ordovician was characterized by a widespread permeable karst system developed by dissolution of carbonate rocks by meteoric water. Probably in early Middle...

... from mean annual air temperatures. The remaining 15% of annual rainfall is drained through the freshwater lens ( Alcocer and others, 1998 ; Moore and others, 1992 ; Hanshaw and Back, 1980 ). The modern aquifer on the Yucatan is density-stratified; a freshwater lens is buoyant and floats above...

... vadose zone is characterized by shallow soils (<30 cm thick) with frequent rock outcrops overlying limestone bedrock, which contains the aquifer. This limestone has two important characteristics: (i) lithologic properties that change with depth and (ii) numerous dissolution cavities ranging from small...

.... This process is not possible in springs fed by distributed recharge that is transmitted through aquifer matrix porosity, such as unconfined aquifers in eogenetic carbonate rocks. Diffusely recharged water has a long residence time within the aquifer, and thus would have equilibrated with the aquifer rocks...

... considered regions of intense diagenesis in carbonate aquifers (e.g., Plummer 1975 ; James and Choquette 1990 ; Tucker and Wright 1990 ). Increased diagenesis is attributed to the mixing behavior of two fluids with different chemistry, especially different P CO 2 values ( Runnells 1969 ; Plummer 1975...

These pores are like those described by Ward and Halley (1985) in dolomite cements found in late Pleistocene rocks on the Yucatan Peninsula. They suggested that the pores formed through preferential dissolution of the most...
