Continental inputs of dissolved materials and particulates from the Gironde estuary to the Bay of Biscay are the largest of the French Atlantic coast. In order to study, through a pluridisciplinary research programme, the ecosystems of continental shelves, the main characteristics of the Bay of Biscay are presented. The relationships between continental fluxes and the shelf are summarized. © 1989.
