Abstract

Despite the general regressive trend which characterize the late Pliocene and Pleistocene ages, marine or littoral environments maintained in the Bay of Cadiz in relation to its depressed situation. A big bay existed between La Rota and La Barrosa which extended along the Valley of the Guadalete River, just by the paleo cliff of Sierra de San Cristobal. The general retreat of the sea eventually led to the development of barrier islands, lagoons and marshes that were repeatedly inundated during the Pleistocene due to positive oscillations of the relative sea-level averaging 10-15 m.
