Description 
Summary

The research programme in the frame of which the data set were gathered aimed towards the best understanding of the phenomenology and the dynamics of the seas of the Eastern Mediterranean. During 52 cruises in the Tyrrhenian, Aegean, Ionian and Levantine Seas CTD data were collected from an extensive grid of stations. The dissolved oxygen and the nutrient data together with the physical parameters have been used to provide assistance in determining water masses and water flows. Data have been collected using Nansen water sampling bottles and the data set comprises measurements made in a dense grid of stations at standard depths. A total of 239 stations with dissolved oxygen and nutrients were held during 3 of the POEM cruises and are included in this data set.
