   FILE: Oceanographic Station Data: Aegean Sea (The Archipelago), Ionian Sea
   
   This file contains physical-chemical oceanographic data recorded at discrete
   depth levels with 80% obtained using CTD instruments, from 3,750 stations. Data
   consists of water temperature, salinity, oxygen, water transparency, collected
   by multi-bottle Nansen casts with reversing thermometers and water samplers as
   well as STD/CTD. Cruise information, position, data and time are reported for
   each station. CTD datasets exist since 1985; other data is available for as
   early as 1972.
   
   FILE: Marine Pollution Data: Aegean Sea (The Archipelago), Ionian Sea
   
   Chemical pollution data exist since 1972 in technical reports and scientific
   papers. They concern nutrients, heavy metals and chlorinated hydrocarbons,
   taken from approximately 3000 stations. Data have been reduced with Technicon
   Autoanalyzer, polarography, and gas chromatography. Sets of basic data on the
   radioactive pollution in the Aegean Sea (the Archipelago) and Ionian Sea exist
   since 1975. Ecotoxicological data also from studies in the same areas exist
   since 1983 and they are archived in technical reports and scientific papers in
   paper form.
