This paper presents a detailed description and classification of this new field of large-scale sediment bodies on the continental shelf off the Cape trafalgar near the Strait of Gibraltar. The AA. take into account not only their modern development under dominant bottom currents but also their spatial variability and relationship with pre-existing subsurface morphology. They pay special attention to the relationship between large-scale sediment bodies and superimposed bedforms. The study is based on a grid of 975 km of high-resolution seismic profiles collected at water depths ranging between 15 and 60 m
