Abstract
Tese de doutoramento, Geologia (Geologia Económica e do Ambiente), Universidade de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências, 2014 This thesis presents the mesoscale characterization of the evolution of two lagoon systems, Traba (550 years of sedimentary sequence) and Melides (1745 years of sedimentary sequence), using sedimentological, geochemical and biological, particularly diatoms, indicators. Also, a characterization of 18 present-day transitional environments (coastal lakes and ponds, lagoons and estuaries) of the Western Iberian Atlantic Coast (WIAC) was performed, based on the diatom content of 25 samples of surface sediments and water physico-chemical parameters.

become progressively more important in explaining that (Devoy et al., 1996; Freitas et al., 2002a; Bao et al., 2007).

Although there are a good number of works about how the forcing agents (natural or anthropogenic) have control the evolution of transitional coastal environments in the WIAC (e. g., Zazo et al., 1996; Pendon et al., 1998; Ramos et al., 2001; Santos et al., 2001; Henriques et al., 2002; Freitas et al., 2003b; Drago et al., 2004; Santos & Sánchez-Goñi, 2003; Cearreta et al., 2003; Abrantes et al., 2005; Dinis et al., 2005; Cabral et al., 2006; Costa, 2006; Drago et al., 2006; Ferreira et al., 2006; Cearreta et al., 2007; Naughton et al., 2007b; Danielsen, 2008; Costas et al., 2009; Cruces et al., 2009; Arribas et al., 2010; Cruces et al., 2010; Granja et al., 2010; Cruces et al., 2011; De la Rosa et al., 2012; Leorri et al., 2013), and at Mediterranean coast (e. g., Bosky et al., 2002; Andrade et al., 2004; Fletcher et al., 2017; Bosky et al., 2008) most of them are focused on estuaries, whereas lagoons and coastal lakes and ponds studies are still scarse.
