Description 
Summary

The aim of the study was to provide useful information about the condition of the sea in the eastern Korinthiakos Gulf, from three aspects: physical, chemical and biological. OGDAP covered the first part of the study. Ten minute current speed and direction and temperature measurements were collected at one site (for a useful period of approximately four months) and CTD data were collected at seven near shore sites, four times within a period of a year. The project was supported by the Greek Ministry of Environment.
