Description 
Summary

Water samplings at various levels during 11 CTD vertical profiles were acquired with a ROSETTE apparatus with 24 Niskins bottles (10 liters each). Targets of the samples were: geochemics of normal waters and brines; calcareous phytoplancton; solved oxygen rate (for calibrating and testing the polarographic sensor added to the CTD SeaBird 911 plus). General goal was to understand the space- and time- evolution of the transient climatic event in the Ionian Sea waters, also comparing the actual data with those acquired in previous years.
