Description 
Summary

Four current meters were moored at depths of 70, 120, 320 and 420 metres on a single chain in the Corsican Channel (43 N, 9.67 E). The chain was anchored to the bottom which was about 450 metres at this point. The data set contains time series of the temperature, conductivity, pressure and the E-W and N-S velocity components of the water masses. The data covers, almost continuously, a period extending from 1985 to 1988 at 30 minute time intervals.
