The goal of the present work is to present some comparisons between current field measurements and numerical simulation results offshore Taranto, a city placed in the South Italy. Field measurements were carried out on 29/12/2006 by means of a Vessel Mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (VM-ADCP) AWAC manufactured by Nortek. Measurements were acquired at nine stations offshore Taranto into the homonymous gulf. The northern and eastern components of the water velocity were useful in order to describe the horizontal field of motion at various depths. The data so obtained were averaged along the depth and they were compared with the results carried out from a two-dimensional numerical model (MIKE21), using a flexible mesh approach for the domain representation.
