*DATASET-NAME : Current meter data collected in the Southern Adriatic Sea and in the Otranto Strait during MATER Project
*TIME-PERIOD : 1997 to present
*GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE : Southern Adriatic Sea, Otranto Strait
*PROJECT : MASTIII/MTPII/MATER, MAss Transfer and Ecosystem Response
*PARAMETERS : Horizontal and vertical current component, sea temperature.
*INSTRUMENTS : Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler SC BB ADCP 150 and 300.
*SUMMARY : Current meter data were collected, toghether with CTD data, within the framework of multidisciplinary studies aimed at investigating the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Adriatic/Ionian basin, paying particular attention to deep water spreading and vertical convection events.
Original data were inspected to eliminate spikes. Subsequently, the time series
of East, North and Vertical components have been reconstructed by means of
autoregressive (AR) models. The archived data, averaged over one hour time
intervals, may contain some missing values only in the Vertical component when the
AR reconstruction failed.
Quality control on the header information has been implemented before the final data-archiving following the MATER Quality Control protocol (SISMER, 1997).
