Description 
Summary

This dataset combines meteorological records (air pressure, temperature, relative humidity and wind speed/direction) with concurrent oceanographic measurements (current/sound velocities, temperature/conductivity/salinity/dissolved oxygen and water column transparency) as collected by the E2M3A data buoy in the South Adriatic Sea between September 2002 and November 2013.
