Description 
Summary

Data have been collected within the framework of national and international research projects, aiming at studying the hydrology and dynamics of coastal areas of Greece for management and protection. Measurements have been made using CTD on board R/V Aegaio. The CTD was equipped with new and/or calibrated pressure, temperature, conductivity and oxygen sensors. The measurements were taken at a rate of 33 scans/sec averaged in situ by software over one second intervals, thus obtaining values at about 0.7 dbar intervals, followed by 3 point interpolation to nominal depths (every dbar). Data are quality controlled. The number of stations that were visited during the projects is approximately 1150.
