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). The field campaign covered 2 months during summer 2013, and additional CTD profiles were measured. Alfacs bay (16 km length and 4 km width) is characterized by a micro-tidal environment, relative shallow depth (max. 6.5 m) and freshwater discharges from the drainage channels of the surrounding rice fields.
