Classical Eulerian Current Time Series

*DATASET-NAME : Current meter data collected in the Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia Region during MATER Project

*TIME-PERIOD : 1996 to present

*GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE : Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia Region

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

*PARAMETERS : Current speed and direction, sea temperature and conductivity.

*INSTRUMENTS : Recording current meter model ANDERAA RCM 7, Profiling RDI 153 KHZ ADCP.

*SUMMARY : Current meter data were collected, toghether with CTD data, within the framework of multidisciplinary studies focused on the evaluation of the water fluxes and dynamics through the Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia Region.

Current meter data were visually inspected to eliminate spikes and averaged over one hour time intervals. Quality control has been implemented for header information before the final data-archiving following the MATER Quality Control protocol (SISMER, 1997).
