Coastal geology of the Holocene progradant plains of sandy beach ridges in Santa Catarina state, Southeastern Brazil

NORBERTO OLMIRO HORN FILHO

Resumo


Beach ridges are indicators of supratidal and intertidal depositional environments built by waves. The major factors that influence on the ridge’s formation is related to antecedent topography, sediment supply, sedimentary balance, and substrate gradient. They consist of siliciclastic and/or bioclastic sediments whose grain size varies from very coarse sand to very fine sand. At Santa Catarina state, progradant plains are related to Pleistocene and Holocene regressive marine processes. The Holocene marine terraces, object of this study, predominate in the coastal plains of Passo de Torres, Pinheira, Jurerê, Tijucas and Navegantes, presenting heights from 3 to 6 m in elevations and 1 to 2 m in depressions. The ridge deposits are constituted by sandy sediments, medium to very fine, composed by quartz, opaque and heavy minerals and shell fragments. The runnel deposits comprehend silt-sand-clayey sediments enriched by organic matter. The evolution of Holocene Santa Catarina beach ridges is connected to the regressive events occurred after 5,1 ky BP that indicate the position of paleo coastlines and mean sea level of the Holocene.
