Summary

The upper sediment samples were taken in the course of two expeditions and cover the total surface of the Mar Menor, both the submerged coastline and the marine bottom. Sediments were studied by sieved columns, and the indexes and parameters of the sand fraction were available. The lime and mud fraction is represented jointly without any modal distribution. The recording of data was performed by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography.
