Description 
Summary

The data were collected on cruise FRONTS 385 carried out in the Catalonia Sea on board the R/V Garcia del Cid. On 17 stations located between Barcelona and the Balearic Islands W, were collected hydrographic and chemical data at different depths of the water column (generally between 0 and 500 m).
