Description 
Summary

This data set was acquired as part of the research formation (graduation and under graduation). Fifty stations were being studied. In each station bathymetry and sediment sample were taken. The sediment samples were taken by several types of grabs, depending on the depth. The bathymetric measurement was carried out by an echo sounder. Near the shore line (depth < 5m), the positioning of station was made by theodolite and the bathymetry by a manual measurement (manual probe). At the laboratory, the sediment samples were processed for the study of sedimentology. The objective is the study of the relation between the distribution of sediments, their size and nature as a function of depth.
