The present paper shows the first field measurements and analysis of sea current assessed offshore Taranto. A series of surveys were carried out using a new Nortek AWAC vessel mounted acoustic velocity profiler. Salinity and temperature vertical profiles were also measured by means of a CTD recorder. The present study was conducted in order to obtain further understanding of the current motion field at the open north-eastern area of the Ionian Sea in Southern Italy and to analyze the vertical distributions of the flow velocity. In addition, the evaluation of the sea numerical simulation compared to the observed datasets was carried out using numerical models.
