Short summary
This sample collection presents a database that integrates surficial sediment samples collected and analysed for textural characterization within the framework of a series of research projects. A total of 4727 samples within the framework of 24 projects developed between 1996 and 2015 along the southern Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula, focusing along the Portuguese coast, including sediments from the continental shelf, beaches, estuaries, and coastal lagoons.
