Abstract: The Foix canyon system is a 97 km long submarine valley that dissects the passive norteastern Iberian margin (NW Mediterranean Sea) from the Catalan continental shelf down to the Valencia channel. It consists of two highly sinuous branches (northern and southern) and two partially in-filled tributaries (Cunit and Valldepins canyons), In this study, we present the first integration of acoustic data from the Foix canyon in order to show its striking geomorphology. The dataset comprises very-high resolution swath bathymetry data (up to 4 m grid size) and TOPAS parametric seismic reflection profiles acquired onboard Bio Hesperides during MARINADA and HERMESIONE crisis in 2002 and 2009.
