Description 
Summary

A collection of 39 samples of sediments obtained from 4 cores of approximately 15m of length each and performed on the sedimentary backfilling in Zarauz (Gipuzkoa). This material allows us to know the temporal variations of the associations of benthonic foraminifers during the last 8000 years as environmental changes took place within this estuary environment, mainly as a response to the variations of sea levels.
