Sal

 

(upper course Dzhurak-Sal), a river in Rostov Oblast, RSFSR, a left tributary of the Don. The Sal is 798 km long and drains an area of 21,300 sq km. It originates in the Kalmyk ASSR and flows over a dry steppe. The lower course meanders. The river is fed primarily by snow. High water is in March and April. The average flow rate 205 km from the river’s mouth is 9.9 cu m per sec. In some years the upper and middle courses dry up in the summer, remaining dry for eight to 200 days. The Sal freezes in mid-December; in some years, the upper Sal freezes completely to the bottom, remaining thus for 19 to 45 days. The ice breaks up in late March. The ice cover is unstable. The main tributaries are the Bol’shoi Gashun, the Malaia Kuberle, and the Bol’shaia Kuberle, on the left, and the Kara-Sal, on the right. Water from the Tsimliansk Reservoir flows into the Sal by way of the Don Main Canal.

La primacia comercial en torno a la sal tomo mayor importancia cuando los espanoles, al emplazarse en el territorio, acrecientan su dependencia por esta; al tener asentamientos precarios y no contar con los medios necesarios (como en Europa) para preservar los alimentos, debieron controlar el uso del mineral, generando que los llamados indios salineros, (que tenian en sus tierras minas de sal), obtuvieran prerrogativas, escapando de la figura de servicios personales, quedando amparados de vejaciones y pagando sus tributos en especies; es decir, "darian a sus encomendaderos la sal que para sus casas hubiere menester" (Arcila Farias, 1973: p.

No Brasil colonial a Regiao dos Lagos vivia basicamente de pesca e da producao artesanal de sal, e provavel que o desenvolvimento da extracao de sal nas bordas da lagoa tenha se acelerado em meados do seculo XIX, por uma suposta transferencia de capitais mercantis e mao-de-obra escrava, tanto do cafe cultivado no Vale do Paraiba, quanto da cana de acucar no municipio de Campos dos Goytacazes, que comecaram a decair e desviar seus recursos para a area das salinas (Figura 3).
