Description 
Summary

Eulerian and lagrangian current measurements both by 10 mooring arrays of ACM and RCM currentmeters and ship-mounted ADCP current profiles were collected with the R/V Thetis togheter with CTD casts. Contemporary, in the framework of PRISMA sub-project 'Longitudinal fluxes', four seasonal multidisciplinary cruises (May, August, November 1995, and February 1996) were conducted with R/V Urania. The main objective was the study of the seasonal time-scale variability of the water and the biogeochemical fluxes. The moored current meters were deployed through four significant transversal sections of the Adriatic Sea. A basin-wide survey with ship-borrne ADCP was carried out on a continuous basis from May 1995 to February 1996. 300 CTD stations were covered in the same period alond the transversal transects.
