This is a study on surficial sediments and bottom water physico-chemical characteristics of the San Jorge Gulf (SW Atlantic, Argentina)during spring 1999 - winter 2000 (first studied period), autumn 2001- summer 2002 (second studied period)and winter 2003 (third studied period), based on samples obtained during research cruises carried out on board of the INIDEP (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo Pesquero)research vessels. Environmental variables such as temperature, salinity, density, oxygen and bottom water chlorophyll a content as well as granulometric fractions, total organic matter, total organic carbon, total nitrogen, total phosphorous, chlorophyll a and phaeopigments in sediment concentration and depth were analyzed. The origen and nutritional value of the deposited organic matter were also assessed. The analyzed variables and distribution patterns and abundance of macrobhentos and shrimp were related. Parametrics and nonparametrics Tests as well as ordenation mu.....
