- The bathymetry of the Adriatic Sea (contour 1m)
The Istituto di Scienze Marine (ISMAR-CNR) conducted several research projects in the Italian side of the Adriatic Sea over more than 15 years collecting bathymetric, geophysical, and sediment core data to
perform multidisciplinary studies of the modern sediment dynamics and of past environmental changes during the last eustatic cycle. A crucial step in this direction was the construction of a detailed bathymetry, a time-consuming task due to the extensive shallow water portion of the basin. Given the setting of the Adriatic Sea and the long-lasting research effort, the bathymetric map is necessarily based on heterogeneous data with uneven spatial distribution of Single Beam echosoundings.
