Southern Adriatic Sea -- Photo Album

29 March 2012

An Italian profiling float was successfully deployed in the Southern Adriatic Sea on 29 March 2012 from R/V Naše More with the help of oceanographers from the Institute for Marine and Coastal Research of Dubrovnik, Croatia. This float is an Arvor-L instrument manufactured by NKE in France. It cycles between the surface and 700/2000 dbar every 5 days and drifts at the parking depth of 350 dbar. It measures temperature and salinity at each ascent. It transmit data to, and is localized by, the standard Argos satellite system when at surface. We thank Drs. Mirna Batistic and Rade Garic and other colleagues from Dubrovnik for their cooperation.
