Description 
Summary

The objective of the MTP II-MATER is to study and to quantify the triggering and controlling mechanisms of mass and energy transfer between the different compartments (land - sea, sea - atmosphere, water - sediment, living - non living, pelagos - benthos), in contrasting trophic environments (from eutrophic to oligotrophic) of the Mediterranean Sea and to investigate the ecosystem response to such transfer.This programme is designed to assess the physical, biological and geochemical processes at various time and space scales, from the entire basin down to the local scale and from interannual variations to daily processes with the aim to forecast the global evolution. MTP II - MATER couples both experimental work and modelling.The project gathers 55 research groups from 13 EU Member States and 3 non-EU States.This data set comprises 727 CTD casts held during 20 Greek cruises.
