Description 
Summary

The Southern Tyrrhenian Sea has traditionally been one of the main research areas of IMO-IUN. Particular emphasis has been given to the Gulf of Naples, extensively investigated by IMO since the late 70s. Hydrographic casts were performed on different station networks. Oxygen profiles and current meter measurements were carried out on a less regular basis. Wave rider records are also available for several years (late '80) in the Gulf of Sorrento. From temperature and conductivity, salinity and density values were obtained, and data were averaged over each decibar. Standard meteorological observations complete the station records.
