Monitoring surveys carried out in winter and spring conditions in the Southern coastal area of Bari, Italy are described in the present paper. Velocity components were measured at different depths, with intervals of 1.5m, by means of a Vessel Mounted Acoustic Doppler Profiler, together with salinity and water temperature data, collected with a CTD recorder system. Wind intensity and air temperature were also recorded for each measurement station. The target area neighbours the eastern wastewater sea outfall system of the city, thus its analysis is necessary for investigating the process of diffusion and transport of the wastewater outfall (taking into account that the sea currents play a pivotal role on physical and microbiological effects), and to validate predictive hydrodynamic models.

Abstract

Monitoring surveys carried out in winter and spring conditions in the Southern coastal area of Bari, Italy are described in the present paper. Velocity components were measured at different depths, with intervals of 1.5m, by means of a Vessel Mounted Acoustic Doppler Profiler, together with salinity and water temperature data, collected with a CTD recorder system. Wind intensity and air temperature were also recorded for each measurement station. The target area neighbours the eastern wastewater sea outfall system of the city, thus its analysis is necessary for investigating the process of diffusion and transport of the wastewater outfall (taking into account that the sea currents play a pivotal role on physical and microbiological effects), and to validate predictive hydrodynamic models.
