The distribution of pigments and fatty acid biogeochemistry of suspended and sinking particles collected in a frontal zone in the western Mediterranean (Almeria-Oran Front) was investigated to determine the sources and fate of the organic matter in relation to the physical forcing of the geostrophic front. Three hydrodynamic structures, comprising the Atlantic jet, an anticyclonic gyre and the surrounding Mediterranean waters, were explored.
