Summary

The Mooring profiler is used in order to study the physical characteristics of the water column at a specific area and to provide detailed information about the physiography of the under study area. This will allow us to understand and evaluate the effect of small and large scale seasonal changes and will confirm the effectiveness of forecasting models.
