Objective Leg 1 (27/06 to 07/07, 9 days): Measuring sediments put into suspension and deposited by currents in periods of high activity by the Moroccan upwelling. Leg 2 (08/07 to 02/08 - 29 days): assessing the concentrations of some trace elements in water and monitoring any increase, at each link in the food chain (zooplankton, molluscs, fish) in concentrations of these contaminants in these organisms. The related project is ANR EPURE 2012-2015. Project led by: Luis Tito de Morais. Metal trace elements, pollution, upwelling and resources.
