Data set name

Hydrology of the water column, of the sediment/bottom water interface in the Adriatic and Ionian Sea during MATER Project

Data holding centreCNR, Institute of Marine Science (ISMAR) (Trieste)
CountryItaly  Italy
Time periodFrom March 1997 to March 1999
Geographical area

Southern Adriatic Sea, Northern Ionian Sea


Particulate total and organic carbon concentrations in the water column; Phosphate concentration parameters in the water column; Phaeopigment concentrations in the water column


PH sensors


Samples from the water column were collected from Niskin bottles; samples for dissolved nutrients were collected in plastic vials and immediatlely analysed; samples for DOC were pre-filtered with glass fiber filters and collected in pre-washed and pre-combusted pirex tubes and frozen for analysis in the lab; samples for TDN and TDP were pre-filtered with glass fiber filters and collected in acid pre-washed high density poly-ethylene 50 ml vials and frozen for analysis in the lab; samples for dissolved oxygen were collected in fixed volume glass bottles and immediatlely analysed. Samples for pore water and bottom water incubation nutrient analysis were provided by other partners, and were handled as the samples from the water column; no dilution on analysis was performed. NO2, NO3, PO4, SiO2 and dissolved oxygen were analysed in all stations on the whole water column; TDN, TDP and DOC were collected in chosen stations and at selected depths. NO2, NH4, NO3, PO4, SiO2 were analysed in the sediments and bottom water.
