Information to be Derived
Times series data;Grain size analysis; Suspended Sediment
24 Oct - loaded ship in Ravenna.
25-28 Oct -- Leg 1a (UW, ICM, OSU, IGM) 2 tripods, 1 mooring and 6 guard buoys
were deployed near Po and Pescara seabed coring and water-column profiling
occurred at night.
28 Oct-4 Nov -- Leg 1b (UW, IGM, OSU, ICM) seabed coring and water-column
profiling extended from Gargano to Po.
5-7 Nov -- Leg 2 (WHOI, IGM, ICM, UW) 4 tripods and 6 guard buoys were deployed
near the Po and Ravenna, water-column profiling occurred at night.
7-13 Nov -- Leg 3 (USGS, IGM, Dalhousie, WHOI, ICM) 2 tripods and 4 guard buoys
were deployed near the Chienti, water-column profiling extended from Gargano to
14 Nov - unloaded ship in Ravenna.
Navigation Techniques: DGPS run by Italian colleagues. Scientists and 
technicians from 12 institutions.
Data exists on Makai/ots/MediterraneanSea/Eurostrataform
