ResumenThis contribution aims to illustrate the Ortegal Cape Contourite Depositional System (OCCDS), a new example of contourites located on the northern Galicia margin generated by the Mediterranean Outflow Water (MOW) influence. This work is based on several datasets collected during two multidisciplinary cruises, including: single echosounder and swath bathymetry data, high and middle resolution reflection seismic profiles, sediment samples and CTD data. Both depositional and erosive features reflect an intense MOW interaction with the sea floor along the slope that has conditioned the occurrence of important local contouritic processes and the building of cold-water coral ecosystems.
DescripciónThis study illustrates the occurrence of a Contourite Depositional System (CDS) at Ortegal Spur (northern Galicia margin, Bay of Biscay), between 43.7ºN-44.35º N and 8.25º W-9.25ºW. The study area corresponds with a fishing ground named “A Selva” which extends 70 miles northwest from Ferrol. This area is characterised by a well defined upper and middle slope, under the influence of the Mediterranean Outflow Water (MOW).
