Abstract
Suspended matter near the bed have been recorded through Optical Backscatter Sensors (OBS), jointly with water current and sea-level measurements, in Alfacs Bay (NW Mediterranean Sea). This bay (16 km length and 4 km width) is characterized by a micro-tidal environment, relative shallow depth (max. 6.5 m) and freswater discharges from the drainage channels of the sourrounding rice fields. OBS voltage gain show an evident relation with energetic hydrodynamic processes, which included strong wind ...
