Let X be an algebraic k-scheme of finite type with a cellular decomposition \(\{Z_{ij}\}\) as defined by W. Fulton [(“Intersection theory” (Berlin 1984; Zbl 0541.14005)] and k an algebraically closed field. The authors give a description of the Chow groups of X, they show that they are free with basis the closure of the cells of the decomposition, in any characteristic. In the case of a fibration \(f:\quad X'\to X,\) such that \(f^{-1}(Z_{ij})=Z_{ij}\times F\) where F is a fixed scheme, they give a method to compute the Chow groups of X’ in terms of the Chow groups of X and F.
