Voyage to Recover and Redeploy Instruments in the Adriatic Sea—the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

MODIS Satellite Image

Satellite image of the Adriatic Sea taken by a Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), showing sites of measurements by the EuroSTRATAFORM program, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Adriatic Circulation Experiment (ACE), and Italy’s ADRICOSM (ADRIatic sea integrated Coastal areaS and river basin Management system pilot project). A persistent and turbid coastal current runs from the Po River Delta (protruding near top left on image, just south of Venice) to the Gargano Peninsula (bottom of map). USGS tripods are red towers just south of Ancona.
