Classical Eulerian Current Time Series

*DATASET-NAME : Current meter data collected in the Adriatic and in the Ionian Sea during MATER Project

*TIME-PERIOD : 1997 to present

*GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE : Southern Adriatic Sea, Otranto Strait, Ionian Sea

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

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

*INSTRUMENTS : Recording current meter model NBA DNC-2B, ANDERAA RCM 7 & 8.

*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.

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).
