The two main lagoons have different geologic structure and different inputs; while Bahía Almirante has carbonate sediment and a relatively small watershed, Laguna de Chiriquí has predominantly siliclastic sediment and a very large watershed. The region also has a long history of clearing and agriculture… CONTINUE READING
