Description 
Summary

This dataset consists of water column measurements (salinity, waveband radiance and irradiance, temperature, dissolved oxygen, transmittance and attenuance and raw fluorometer) collected during the Phase 2 of the Italian PRISMA Programme.The investigation area was in front of delta Po river (44°25-italian coastN, italian coast-13°40E). The autumn oceanographic cruise was conducted over 4 legs, with the following calendar: Phase 1: 24/09-28/09, collected 57 CTD profiles Phase 2: 30/09-02/10, collected 69 CTD profiles, 31 stations with biogeochemical sampling Phase 3: 23/10-24/10, collected 42 CTD profiles Phase 4: 05/11-06/11, collected 20 CTD profiles CTD data were collected with SBE 911 Plus probe with pressure, temperature, conductivity and dissolved oxygen sensors.
