Description 
Summary

These hydrology data were collected during a global cruise in which there several activities made (the project 'Monitoring of pollution by oil hydrocarbon in the Algerian coast' and other activities). The cruise was made from 09/08/1998 to 22/08/1998. The objective is the characterization of water to know constraints of pollution that they can undergo and their circulation in studied area in the western Algerian coast.
