Description 
Summary

The marine current data were collected in the framework of a research program on pollution of the Bay of Augusta. The moorings were deployed with 1 or 2 current meters. The time series were recorded at sampling interval of 10 minutes. The data are fully quality controlled for gaps, spikes and spurious data. The raw data are averaged over 1 hour time interval and analyzed to produce spectral analysis, tidal component and residual. The data sets are stored as a raw time series for each current meter (1 data cycle of temperature, speed and direction every 10 minutes). The complete data set consists of 521 current meter days.
