Abstract

We focused our study on the offshore lagoonal complex of  Oualidia-Sidi Moussa at long term period. The seasonal upwelling area influences this area on the Moroccan Atlantic coast with rich marine biodiversity and significant fisheries resources. This lagoon complex's meteorological and oceanographic characteristics have been analyzed monthly between 1958 and 2021, and concern wind, swells, surface water currents, surface ocean water temperature and salinity. We present and discuss the climate interaction between the marine and lagoon environment in this study.
