Summary

Surface meteorological, bathymetric and route data were collected on board of R/V Urania within the framework of multidisciplinary studies aimed at investigating the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Adriatic/Ionian basin, paying particular attention to the meteorological conditions encontered during the cruises. The data were collected at fixed time-intervals (5 or 15 minutes) and visually inspected to eliminate spikes and misrecordings.
