Description 
Summary

Current meter 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 spreading and vertical convection events. Current meter data were visually inspected to eliminate spikes and averaged over one hour time intervals. Quality control has been implemented for header information before the final data-archiving following the MATER Quality Control protocol (SISMER, 1997). 23 current time series were collected at multiple depths on three mooring positions: in the Adriatic Sea, in the Otranto Strait and in the Ionian Sea. Sediment traps were coupled to the mooring as well.
