Description 
Summary

Surface temperature, salinity, fluorescence and turbidity data obtained from a flow-through system manufactured by 4H-JENA GmbH. The system is installed on board the KRITI II ferry, that travels between Piraeus and Crete every night, and commenced its operation in November 2003. It collects and records minute averaged data (roughly sampling spacing of 600 m) on the line Piraeus to Heraklion (Crete). It repeats each trip with the specific destination and departure port, every other night. There is possibility for real-time data transfer through GSM.
