Description 
Summary

Self-recording current meters were used for current measurements, deployed on a total of eight moorings. Prior to their deployment all the current meters used, were sent to the manufacturer for calibration. In addition, ADCP measurements were occupied across the Straits of the Cretan Arc. Current meters and ADCP aimed to investigate the temporal and spatial variability of water flow through the Straits of the Cretan Arc, as well the vertical variability of that flow. The current meter data are stored as raw time series at each site with values of speed, direction, temperature and conductivity at an interval of 30 minutes. ADCP was employed for 15 minutes at each station giving vertical profiles from 10 to 200m. The data set comprises 38 time series from 8 moorings and 61 ADCP stations.
