Abstract: El presente trabajo pretende contribuir a un conocimiento más amplio en la naturaleza del medio sedimentario de un cuerpo de agua del litoral de Sonora, tomando en consideración elementos ambientales básicos como son: fisiografía, geomorfología, materiales, energía, caracteríisticas físicas y químicas de los sedimentos y un análisis sobre organismos bentónicos (bivalvos).
The coastal lagoon El Soldado, Sonora, Mexico was studied in order to describe this sediments from the textural, phisical-chemical, chemical and mineralogic point of view and evaluate the possible relationship of this parameters with bentonic organisms (bivalves). The granulometric analysis were made using the technics by Folk (1974). The organic matter and carbonate were determined by loss on ignition method of Dean (1974). The salinity, pH and heavy metals were quantified respectively with the utilization of conductivimeter, potentiometer and atomic absortion spectropgotometer. the organisms were collected and quantified by areal unit for its posterior identification. The sediments distribution shows a definite pattern: more coarse in the area near of the lagoon mouth (Proximal zone), with the variation to silty sand (Intermedial zone) and to more fine textures in the interior of the water body (Distal zone).
