Geographical area

A network of 160 stations covering the Strait of Sicily, and the area between Sicily and Sardinia

Observations 
Parameters

Salinity of the water column; Horizontal velocity of the water column (currents); Temperature of the water column

Instruments

Current meters; thermistor chains

Description 
Summary

The direct calculation of fluxes was compared with previous ones obtained with different methods. Short period STD time series and a longer (9 days) thermistor array record in the Strait of Sicily revealed small fluctuations with a semi-diurnal period.
