Description 
Summary

Includes data from the oceanographic cruises IBIZA-90, IBIZA-391 and IBIZA-791 which were carried out between the years 1990 and 1991. This project is still being worked on. The strategy of the expeditions is based on a fast sampling of the required parameters. A network of 54 hydrographic stations, 24 of them also recorded other parameters such as dissolved oxygen, photosynthetic pigments and took samples of zooplankton. This data supports the study of the microscale, fronts, cyclonic and anticyclonic variations, upwelled waters and currents in the area.
