Bathymetry, gravity and magnetism in the Strait of Sicily
In cooperation with SACLANTCEN, O.G.S. started in 1961 the geophysical survey of the Mediterranean Sea (Allan, Morelli, 1971 ), which after 1966 was continued in the seas around Italy on the oceanographic ships of C.N.R. : "Bannock" and "Marsili". The bathymetric, gravimetric and magnetic survey of the Sicily Channel was initiated during the "Codicil" Cruise in 1962 (6744 miles): the data were utilized for the compilation of the four maps of "Area 7" (Strait of Sicly), already published (Allan, Morelli, 1971).
