Scientific Activity: 

According to previous studies the Adriatic Sea on an annual basis loses heat and represents the freshwater source for the Eastern Mediterranean. However, so far there have not been direct calculations of the salt and heat fluxes through the Strait of Otranto. The aim of this study is to estimate, using experimental current and thermohaline in situ data from the Strait of Otranto, the salt and heat budget of the Adriatic. Comparison will be made with the air-sea heat and total freshwater balance.
