The Great Basin of the Valley of Mexico was composed of several lagoons that have disappeared due to their geologic evolution and anthropogenic activities.
The Tecocomulco lagoon, Hidalgo, is a relict of that basin and has undergone extreme changes in its size and water composition during geologic periods; however, climatic changes, the deforestation of the sub-basin and the agricultural activities have modified its morphology, area and depth, leading to a great accumulation of sediments that fill up the lagoon.
The estimate of changes in the lagoon’s surface through five decades (1975, 1985, 1990, 2001, 2002) was the objective of the present work using satellite images, jointly with an environmental interpretative analysis.
The factors that have mod...
