Description 
Summary

The chemical data were collected in the framework of a research program designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the physical and chemical oceanography of the northern Adriatic. The hydrological stations were occupied during 14 seasonal cruises, 2 of which were carried out in spring (1977, 1979), 5 in summer (1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982), 3 in autumn (1980, 1981, 1982) and 4 in winter (1977, 1980, 1981, 1982). The original data were collected, analyzed, quality controlled and worked up by ITTS.
