Description 
Summary

The marine current data were collected in the framework of a research program scheduled to reach a comprehensive knowledge of the circulation along the coasts of the Emilia-Romagna region, where summer algal blooms and eutrophication phenomena occur. The moorings were deployed with 1 or 2 current meters. The time series were recorded at sampling intervals of 5 or 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 5 or 10 minutes) The complete dataset consists of 1695 current meter days.
