Summary

The samples of upper sediments were taken on the internal shelf on board the R/V 'Cornide de Saavedra'. Granulometric studies have been carried out on the sand fraction, while lime+mud are expressed as a total percentage. A total of 47 stations were sampled by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography.
