With the collaboration of CNR-ISMAR (Institute for Marine Science, Italy), a new mooring station is operational in the CIESM Hydrochanges Program. The mooring has been deployed in the Bari canyon for the long-term monitoring of dense shelf water cascading process into the Southern Adriatic basin. At present, the array is about 100m long and is equipped with a down-looking ADCP, an automatic sediment trap, a temperature logger, a recorder of temperature, conductivity and turbidity, and a single point current-meter. Mooring was working also between April 2004 and April 2005.
The details of the mooring station are:
Station name: BB
