Description 
Summary

The collection contains information on grain size of sediment and its content of organic matter. The sediment corresponds to two subtidal stations in the Ria de la Coruna, and there is information since 1982. Data is filed on EXCEL. The optimum sample frequency is monthly, although there are some blank periods. This series could perhaps be useful for the study of climatic changes. The information is available prior agreement with the author.
