    Reactions of Foraminiferal Assemblages on Tropical Coastal Beachrocks to Hydrodynamic and Sedimentary Processes
    Author(s): Yanli Lei*

    The interaction between sedimentary processes and hydrodynamics has a significant impact on coastal habitats. Given the sensitivity and specificity of living populations or the presence of dead specimens, the assemblages of benthic foraminifera are structured by environmental factors, making them excellent indicators of the main processes in coastal settings. The present study evaluated environmental variables in beachrocks of Brazilian tropical sandy beaches using benthic foraminifera as a proxy. In order to describe foraminiferal assemblages (27 samples), as well as to conduct grain size analysis and CaCO content determination, samples were collected at the base of coastal beachrocks on the beaches Pina, Enseada, and Toquinho (northeastern, Brazil) (27 samples). Medium to coarse sand of terrestrial origin, fairly sorted and roughly symmetrical, made up the majority of the deposits. .. Read More»
