Landscapes of Camargue...

July 2020

To the south, there is a lagoon-marine Camargue shaped by the incursions of the sea and the action of the wind. These lagoon areas are mainly located south of the Vaccarès pond. The lagoons are subject to many variations in water level and salinity under the influence of the wind. The mistral (north wind) carries the slightly salty water from the Vaccarès pond into the lagoons, thus reducing the salinity of the latter.
