Description 
Summary

XBT data were collected, toghether with CTD data, within the framework of multidisciplinary studies aimed at investigating the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Adriatic/Ionian basin, paying particular attention to deep water formation processes occurring in the Southern Adriatic Sea. XBT data were visually inspected to eliminate spikes and then averaged over 1 dbar pressure intervals. At every XBT launching location the SST has been measured by an ordinary mercury-in-glass thermometer. Quality control has been implemented before the final data-archiving following the MATER Quality Control protocol (SISMER, 1997).
