Abstract
    A series of measures of temperature and salinity was made in different brackish waters along the Atlantic coast of Morocco. All waters examined were polyhaline, except for a series of hyperhaline salt mines. The importance of temperature in the sediment is discussed: temperature in the top layer may rise considerably (7° C) above air temperature. However, in the deeper layers, temperature is lower than in the air and the water.
