dc.description.abstractSaline pans are an important component of the hydrologic cycle in arid areas, and are common in South Africa. Natural saline pans on the coastal lowlands of the Western Cape Province, South Africa, were studied to determine the origin and evolution of salts within the pans. Samples of surface, stream and spring water as well as pan sediments were collected from two large coastal pans near Ysterfontein, and eight smaller pans 10-20 km from the sea, on the inland side of the granitic Darling hills.en_ZA
