The well-exposed systems of prograding beach ridges on the Carchuna-Calahonda (Granada) and Campo de Dalías-Roquetas (Almería) coastal plains continue offshore as infralittoral prograding wedges (IPW). The aim of this paper is to present the results of seismic and bathymetric surveys in the shallow nearshore zone along this south-eastern coast of Spain, carried out in the framework of the ESPACE geological program, and to evaluate whether or not the IPW can be correlated with the emergent coastal sequences along the same coastal tracts
