Description 
Summary

The CYCO project aimed to collect physical and chemical oceanographic data in the coastal sea area of Cyprus, particularly at the Akrotiri Bay, in order to study the coastal hydrodynamic regime of the bay and to carry out the summer practice/training of student from the RSMU in the framework of a bilateral scientific agreement between OC-UCY and RSMU.
