Geographical area

A network of about 400 stations covering the NW Tyrrhenian Sea and the area west of Sardinia

Observations 
Parameters

Electrical conductivity of the water column; Horizontal velocity of the water column (currents); Temperature of the water column

Instruments

Current meters

Description 
Summary

The project was devoted to studying the air-sea interaction and mixed layer deepening, for useful comparison with other similar experiment and with output from numerical models. 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.
