Currents, pressure, temperature, conductivity, and sigma-theta data collected for the EuroSTRATAFORM PASTA experiment from moorings deployed from the SEWARD JOHNSON II and the GARCIA DEL CID from November 8, 2002 to February 16, 2003 (NODC Accession 0067556)

The EuroSTRATAFORM Po and Apennine Sediment Transport and Accumulation (PASTA) experiment was an international study of sediment-transport processes and formation of geological strata in the Adriatic Sea. The study was funded by the Office of Naval Research and the European Union, and conducted in the winter of 2002-2003. The U. S. Geological Survey deployed three tripods at 10-m and 20-m depths off the Italian coast, near the town of Civitinova and the mouth of the Chienti River. The data include measurements related to coastal oceanographic properties and sediment-transport dynamics, and are being used to test and improve numerical models of circulation and transport of sediment and pollutants.
