Description 
Summary

Current meter data were collected, toghether with CTD data, within the framework of multidisciplinary studies focused on the evaluation of the water fluxes and dynamics through the Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia Region. Current meter data were visually inspected to eliminate spikes and averaged over one hour time intervals. Quality control has been implemented for header information before the final data-archiving following the MATER Quality Control protocol (SISMER, 1997).
