General
Data set name

CTDO, XBT, nutrient and current meter data in S Tyrrhenian Sea (1984)

Data holding centreSACLANT Undersea Research Centre (SACLANTCEN)
CountryItaly  Italy
Time periodFrom August to November 1984
OngoingNo
Geographical area

A network of about 250 stations covering the southern Tyrrhenian Sea between Sicily and Sardinia

Observations 
Parameters

Salinity of the water column; Horizontal velocity of the water column (currents); Temperature of the water column

Instruments

Current meters

Description 
Summary

The primary purpose was to investigate the late summer water-mass variability and the interior flow structure on the Sardinia-Sicily opening. Instruments are calibrated and intercalibrated on a regular basis in the SACLANTCEN. Derivation of salinity and density values from temperature and conductivity is carried out according to UNESCO standard algorithms. Standard meteorological observations complete the station records.
