Surface Underway Data

*DATASET-NAME : Surface meteorological, bathymetric and route parameters collected underway in the Southern Adriatic and Ionian Sea during MATER Project

*TIME-PERIOD : 1998 to present

*GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE : Southern Adriatic and Ionian Sea

*PROJECT : MASTIII/MTPII/MATER, MAss Transfer and Ecosystem Response

*PARAMETERS : Underway ship position, speed and heading, air temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, incident radiation, sea surface temperature and conductivity.

*INSTRUMENTS : R/V Urania meteorological station, GPS and gyrocompass.

*SUMMARY : Surface meteorological, bathymetric and route data were collected on board of R/V Urania within the framework of multidisciplinary studies aimed at investigating the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Adriatic/Ionian basin, paying particular attention to the meteorological conditions encontered during the cruises.

The data were collected at fixed time-intervals (5 or 15 minutes) and visually inspected to eliminate spikes and misrecordings.
