dc.description.abstractWith the results obtained in the various marine campaigns carried out in the Strait of Gibraltar Sill, an area covered with ahermatipic coral mounds and hardgrounds very lithified has been encountered in its central and deepest part (180-300 m). The strong marine currents and the different nature of the waters (Mediterranean and Atlantic) that meet in the Strait play a main role in the development of the deep mounds because they are responsible for the elongated shape and Hthification that affect both coral mounds and hardgrounds between them. The term lithoherm, already used in the Strait of Florida, is adopted for these kinds of biogenic sedimentsen_US
