Description 
Summary

The different hydrographic and chemical features were analyzed in relation to the impact of mucilaginous aggregates on the Northern Adriatic Ecosystem. This project comprised monthly combined cruises covering the whole of the Northern Adriatic basin north of a line from Ravenna (Italy) to Lussino (Croatia), and was carried out with four vessels simultaneously. The data were collected during 9 cruises from March to October 1990, 6 cruises from June to November 1991 and 9 cruises from March to November 1992.
