Objective Leg 1: Finding the zones where temporary mud deposits tend to form. - Mapping and quantification of sedimentary matter under two distinct conditions in the year: late winter conditions (flood: VASTEDEBA I) and slack water (VASTEDEBA II). Leg 2: Trials were run to measure the erodability of surface sediment (muddy or sandy muddy) using the IFREMER. Acquisition of oxygen profile data in surface sediment. This falls under the PNEC project, Bay of Biscay study.
