Description 
Summary

These data were acquired within the framework of the activities of research/formation of the institute. Thus, the physico-chemical study of the Algiers bay was made. The objective is to know the characteristics of water of the bay and the influence that they undergo by the continental input and water from Atlantic origin (Algerian current). Oxygen, temperature, pH and salinity were measured in situ or on board. For nutrient analysis, water was sampled by Niskin bottle and conveyed at the laboratory. Approximately 30 stations were studied with 2 or 3 levels of depth and sometimes more. This study was carried out during a cruise from 21/05/1989 to 22/05/1989.
