Sediments cores collection in two beaches of the gulf of California, Bahia Magdalena and Playa Balandra. This data present a preliminary analysis of Mexican desert mangrove carbon context, and species source of belowground peat tissue.
Using an open-faced soil sampler (Oakfield Apparatus), we cored into the substrate in 40-cm increments (the length of the corer). We described each distinct sediment layer along each core using the Geotechnical Gauge guide (W. F. McCollough) for color and texture definitions.
