Abstract:

The most general long-term goals of this study, as part of EuroSTRATAFORM, are to investigate the oceanic processes that erode, transport, and deposit sediment in the margin system. More specifically, this project seeks to define and describe the Western Adriatic Current and the Po and Apennine River plumes by direct observations, as well as specially focused experiments to document aspects of dispersal that lead to event layers, bed reworking and cross-margin sediment flux.
