Description 
Summary

The purpose of the work was to find a model for the physical- chemical dynamics of the waters of the Albufera de Mallorca. For this 40 stations were set up and 9 seasonal samplings were carried out. The results show the dynamics of physical chemical homogenization during the Autumn periods, with high concentrations of nutrients due the decomposition of sacrophites. Later starts a period of homogenization of the environmental gradient which reaches its highest point in summer. Finally, proposals are made for the necessary steps for the management of the waters of the Natural Park of La Albufera.
