COURSE TITLE: Introduction to the historical and morphological changes (1800 to present) along the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Colombia

INSTRUCTORS Ivan Dario Correa

COURSE DESCRIPTION Introduction to the historical and morphological changes (1800 to present) along the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Colombia

Abstract
The tectonic and morphological framework of Colombia’s Caribbean and Pacific coasts have implications upon the formation and evolution of wetlands. Considerable change has occurred to the Colombian coast since 1800 and has affected the formation of Late Holocene wetlands. Several geological hazards persist along these coasts and continue to exert influence upon coastal ecosystems; these include shoreline erosion, emergence/subsidence, flooding, salinization and inland migration of wetland vegetation.
Short Bio.
Iván D. Correa has a Bachelor degree in Geological Engineering from the National University of Colombia and a Ph.D degree in Marine Geology from the University Bordeaux I with the doctoral work: The Pacific littoral of Colombia: relationships between the morpho-structural and hydrodynamic factors. His primary research interest has been the definition of the geological and geomorphological frameworks of the Colombian Pacific and Caribbean littoral zones, including coastal mapping, the definition of magnitudes and causes of its historical shoreline changes and the geohazards associated to mud diapirism phenomena (southern Caribbean) and the erosion and breaching of the major barrier islands of the Colombian Pacific coast; results of these researches has been published in more than 35 national and international publications. After 35 years of academic and research activities in the Colombian Geological Institute (Ingeominas) and the Eafit University Ivan Correa works currently as a consultant in shore protection projects along the Caribbean littoral of Colombia.

SYLLABUS/TOPICAL OUTLINE Dr. Ivan Correa’s nearly four-decades career has included interests in coastal geology and geomophology, marine geophysics, and geographic information systems. His doctorate focused upon marine geology of the Colombian Pacific coast, following an undergraduate education in Geology Engineering. He is an independent consultant with 27 years of experience as a research professor at Eafit University, Medellín Colombia, where he has directed many projects in coastal and marine science, and mapping. He also served five years as a technical geologist for the National Institute of Geological-Mining Research (INGEOMINAS), which is a merger of Colombia’s Geological Survey, the mining inventory, and the National chemical laboratory. Dr. Correa will introduce the tectonic and morphological framework of Colombia’s Caribbean and Pacific coasts and its implication upon the formation and evolution of wetlands. Specifically, he will discuss the changes that have occurred to the Colombian coast since 1800, and how they have affected the formation of Late Holocene wetlands. Future challenges will be introduced in the context of persistent coastal geological hazards that include shoreline erosion, emergence/subsidence, flooding, salinization and inland migration of wetland vegetation.
