We are concerned with the existence, uniqueness and qualitative behavior of weak solutions to nonlinear conservation laws, of the form

@u-                           '         '
@t -div(A(.,u) \~/ f(u))= 0,  f(0) =f (0)= 0,  f > 0,

associated with mixed conditions on the parabolic boundary. We establish a global result of existence for initial data in the space L oo  , when coefficients of A are Carathéodory functions.

Under these assumptions, we prove the global uniqueness with additional information on the structure of the matrix of absolute permeability A(.,.)  . The asymptotic behavior of the solution and the local hyperbolic character of the degenerate equation are specified.
