Description 
Summary

The project METRO-MED aims to study and model the key processes of matter transfer (exchange and storage) and the biogeochemical cycles in the coastal zone system. These processes have been studied in two sites in the Mediterranean Sea; in the Thermaikos Gulf in Northern Greece and in the Gulf of Lions in southern France.This data set comprises 19 time series from 11 moorings in Thermaikos Gulf with 30 minute values of speed, direction, temperature and conductivity.
