Description 
Summary

The marine current data were collected in the framework of a research program scheduled to reach a comprehensive knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological oceanography of the Eastern Mediterranean. The data were obtained from 5 current meters, at depths ranging from 53 to 874 m. The time series were recorded at sampling intervals of 10 minutes. The data are fully quality controlled for gaps, spikes and spurious data. The raw data are averaged over 1 hour time intervals and analysed to produce spectral analysis, tidal components and residuals. The datasets are stored as a raw time series for each current meter (1 data cycle of temperature, speed and direction every 10 minutes). The complete dataset consists of 60 current meter days.
