Description 
Summary

Monitoring of water quality in the coastal region of Dalmatia - Vir-Konavle has been done from 1982 on seasonal base. Various physical, chemical and biological parameters have been studied. Data about temperature, salinity, oxygen and nutrients were processed and stored in MEDAS relational database.
