Description 
Summary

The data were collected on the cruise ATLOR II carried out in the upwelling region of NW Africa from 1-21 March 1973 on board the R/V Cornide de Saavedra. On 27 stations located in the Atlantic between 17° N, 23° N and 22° W and the African coast, were collected data on temperature, salinity, sigma-T, and chemical parameters, at different depths (between 0-1000 m and occasionally till 3500 m).
