Description 
Summary

These hydrology data were collected within the framework of the realization of the 'Monitoring of pollution by oil hydrocarbon in the Algerian coast' project. This study was carried out during two cruises: the first was made from 03/08/1996 to 20/08/1996 and the second from 03/08/1997 to 27/08/1997. The objective is the characterization of water to know constraints of pollution that they can undergo and their circulation in the studied area. In the first cruise there are 20 stations and in the second there are 16 stations studied with about two levels of depth in which the data was measured on board.
