Description 
Summary

Approximately 500 seismic profiles were carried out with a double purpose. On one hand it studies the infralittoral area down to a depth of 30 m with the purpose of locating a bank of aggregates capable of replenishing the beaches in the bay and, on the other hand, to evaluate the extension and level of occupation of the posidonicola patches by the study of the substrate on which they are located. The seismic registers are of very high quality, and are the property of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography.
