The temperature structure in the upper layers of the Ligurian Sea and its seasonal variations
Water temperature measurements in the Ligurian Sea down to depths of 150 meters and meteorological data connected with these measurements for the period July 1960 to October 1961 are presented in the form of graphs and tables. In July 1960 the Center started a survey of the Ligurian Sea to study the thermal behaviour and seasonal variation of the water in the area to depths of 150 meters. After some preparatory measurements, it was decided to survey regularly the following routes: Isola del Tino, Isola della Giraglia; Isola della Giraglia, Isola Capraia; Capo Mele, Isola della Giraglia; Cap Ferrat, Punta Revellata; and Isle du Levant, Punta Revellata. Measurements on other routes also were made occasionally.
