Abstract
    Five box-corers deployed during Eurofleets Cruise MD 194 Gateway on the eastern Melilla carbonate mound at the Alboran Moroccan margin were studied in order to understand the sedimentological processes and the sources of the sediments. Preliminary results of this study showed that sediment associated to cold-water corals and carbonate mounds are supplied by two main sources: an intrabasinal biogenic source and a land source, the Bou Areg plain in the Nador region. The area off the Brittlestar Ridge I was alimented by terrigenous source, the Cabliers site was supplied by biogenic source and the top of the Brittlestar Ridge I was alimented by both sources.
