Gulf of Cádiz
The seabed morphology and the sub-bottom characteristics of a sector of the Gulf of Cádiz continental slope have been analyzed from different data sets. The morphological characteristics, the type of sediments and dominant benthic species of Gazul mud volcano and adjacent areas have been studied. The morphological characteristics identified were grouped in fluid escape related features, bottom current features, mass movement features, structural features and biogenic related features. Additionally, dominant benthic species associated to fluid escape and seepage, hard substrates or soft bottoms have also been indicated in these features. A bottom current velocity analysis allowed relating the morphological features with the different sedimentary and oceanographic processes as well as the benthic habitats and that currently occur in the mud volcano and nearby areas. The major factor controlling these features and their associated benthic habitats is the interaction of deep water ...
