Description 
Summary

The sampling of non-consolidated upper sediment is essential to the study of sediment dynamics. On this occasion we have extracted 85 samples and tested them for grain size and infauna contents, as well as performing bacteriological and nutrients tests. The project has been financed by the Spanish-American joint committee and by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography.
