AB - ABSTRACT: The San Juan delta of Colombia formed under a complex physical setting. Among the unusual factors that controlled the delta formation are: its location in an area with one of the highest precipitation rate anywhere in the world, highly variable river discharge and high sea levels of short duration, both associated with El Nino-La Nina climatic disturbance, and high mesotidal range combined with a medium to low wave energy. Of all the aspects that make the physical setting complex, the high seismicity produced by the subduction of the Nazca plate under the South American plate, has perhaps, been the most important controlling factor in the Late Holocene development of the delta. Coring on its SW island retrieved soils buried, 1.2-1.5 m by intertidal deposits; the sharp contact between the soils and the mantling deposits, implies large sudden submergence, which is most simply explained as being coseismic, associated with the high seismicity of the area. Timing of the earthquake that caused subsidence, is placed around 500 years BP. Evidence from recent earthquakes along the South central Pacific coast of Colombia indicates that--subsidence >1 m requires a M 7.9 or greater earthquake.

AB - ABSTRACT: This article explores the question of how scientific information can improve local agronomic management using concepts of uncertainty classification and uncertainty management. Information and data on local management of soil fertility based on a local classification system of soil quality were collected from a small watershed in Cauca (Colombia). The analyses suggest that farmers hold local knowledge about soils at two levels. The first is based on empirical observations and refers to local knowledge about soils and landscape, which shows that the classes identified in the local soil quality classification are consistent with results obtained using measured soil parameters. At the second level, farmers have some awareness of ecological processes and the appropriate use of relationships between key soil characteristics and management options. It is argued that local knowledge is not sufficient to cope with uncertainty introduced by a rapidly changing agriculture, including, for example, increasing land pressure, unpredictable market forces and climate change. We have suggested how scientific knowledge can contribute to the solution, based on an analysis that relates Cohen's (Heuristic reasoning about uncertainty: an artificial intelligence approach. Pitman London, 1985) and Rowe's (Risk Analysis 14, 743-750, 1994) uncertainty concepts to local knowledge.

AB - ABSTRACT: Caiman crocodilus, or the spectacled caiman, is the most common of extant caimans and has been studied by a number of renowned anatomists. Its internal cranial morphology, however, has neither been described in great detail nor examined for phylogenetic purposes. For example, the complexity of the pneumatic and Eustachian passages in this species may provide systematically informative data. The ontogeny of Caiman has also not been well examined, especially not in a phylogenetic context, and knowledge of the species is thus lacking in a significant area of information. I initiated an investigation in an effort to discover new systematic characters for C. crocodilus. High-resolution Computed Tomography data were used to describe the osteology of Caiman crocodilus; each element of the skull was also studied for internal structures that are only visible through the use of CT. An ontogenetic series of the species was examined, allowing description of the ontogenetic trajectory of Caiman crocodilus. Finally, this study provides the baseline data for a re-evaluation of the systematic placement of Caiman by proposing new potential osteological and ontogenetic characters. These include characters taken from the morphology of the pneumatic and eustachian passages and from ontogenetic data.

AB - ABSTRACT: Formation of the Cretaceous Caribbean plateau, including the komatiites of Gorgona, has been linked to the currently active Galapagos hotspot. We use Hf-Nd isotopes and trace element data to characterise both the Caribbean plateau and the Galapagos hotspot, and to investigate the relationship between them. Four geochemical components are identified in the Galapagos mantle plume: two "enriched" components with epsilon Hf and epsilon Nd similar to enriched components observed in other mantle plumes, one moderately enriched component with high Nb/Y, and a fourth component which most likely represents depleted MORB source mantle. The Caribbean plateau basalt data form a linear array in Hf-Nd isotope space, consistent with mixing between two mantle components. Combined Hf-Nd-Pb-Sr-He isotope and trace element data from this study and the literature suggest that the more enriched Caribbean end member corresponds to one or both of the enriched components identified on Galapagos. Likewise, the depleted end member of the array is geochemically indistinguishable from MORB and corresponds to the depleted component of the Galapagos system. Enriched basalts from Gorgona partially overlap with the Caribbean plateau array in epsilon Hf vs. epsilon Nd, whereas depleted basalts, picrites and komatiites from Gorgona have a high epsilon Hf for a given epsilon Nd, defining a high-epsilon Hf depleted end member that is not observed elsewhere within the Caribbean plateau sequences. This component is similar, however, in terms of Hf-Nd-Pb-He isotopes and trace elements to the depleted plume component recognised in basalts from Iceland and along the Reykjanes Ridge. We suggest that the Caribbean plateau represents the initial outpourings of the ancestral Galapagos plume. Absence of a moderately enriched, high Nb/Y component in the older Caribbean plateau (but found today on the island of Floreana) is either due to changing source compositions of the plume over its 90 Ma history, or is an artifact of limited sampling. The high-epsilon Hf depleted component sampled by the Gorgona komatiites and depleted basalts is unique to Gorgona and is not found in the Caribbean plateau. This may be an indication of the scale of heterogeneity of the Caribbean plateau system; alternatively Gorgona may represent a separate oceanic plateau derived from a completely different Pacific plume, such as the Sala y Gomez.

AB - ABSTRACT: Lower Cretaceous plant fossils are described systematically from marine deposits near Villa de Leiva (Boyaca region, Colombia). Specimens originating from the same localities kept at the Florida Museum of Natural History (Gainesville) were included in the systematic description. The plant fossils belong to the Pteridophyta, the Cycadophyta, the Coniferophyta, and to taxa of uncertain affinity which, following previous authors, are referred to the angiosperms. Two new species of Coniferophyta are described, viz. Cupressinocladus hoedemaekeri sp. nov. and Brachyphyllum winklerprinsii sp. nov. Also, Thuites sutamarchensis Huertas is transferred to the genus Cupressinocladus.

AB - ABSTRACT: A review of historical data for locally and regionally generated tsunamis indicates that 11 events have struck the coast of El Salvador between 1859 and 2002. Two of these tsunamis caused significant death and destruction. Five of the tsunamis were triggered locally, three regionally (from other countries of Central America), and three were triggered by distant earthquakes in the Aleutian, Chilean, and Colombian subduction zones. Nearly 200 fatalities have been caused by local tsunamis. Reported damages range from coastal flooding to the destruction of villages. Earthquakes of magnitude 7 or higher having epicenters offshore or onshore (close to the coastline) could trigger tsunamis that would impact the coastal areas of El Salvador. A preliminary estimation of tsunami hazard indicates that the entire Pacific coast of Central America is at risk from impact by tsunamis. In this paper, we illustrate the potential damage in El Salvador that could be caused by a distant tsunami with a numerical simulation of the 31 January 1906 Colombia tsunami.
