Description 
Summary

The CTD data were collected in the framework of a research program scheduled to reach a comprehensive knowledge of the dynamics of the Gulf of Trieste. The original CTD data were collected, controlled, analyzed and worked up by OGS team. The high resolution data of each station were averaged over 1 dbar pressure interval. The salinity has been computed according to the practical salinity scale of 1978. The data are stored as depth series per cruise and per station. The CTD stations were occupied during 4 cruises: December 1984, February, June and August 1985. The data set comprises about 100 vertical profiles.
