Short Description The elastic beacon "MEDA B Napoli" is located in the Gulf of Naples in front of Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn near the coast (Latitude: 40° 49.668' N, Longitude: 014° 13.984' E), at 17.5 m depth. The MEDA B is equipped with automatic instruments for continuous acquisition of weather-marine parameters, which allow to carry out high frequency and long-term measures. Data is transmitted in real-time to earth via a broadband Wi-Fi bridge and also via the GSM network.
Measuring Instruments

Profile System (Multiparameter Probe)

The system acquires the physical-chemical data along the water column from the surface to the depth of 15 meters. The parameters acquired are: Depth (m), Temperature (°C), Salinity (psu), Dissolved Oxygen (ml/l), pH, Fluorescence (RFU) and Irradiance (µE/m2sec)

Weather sensors

The weather station on MEDA acquires continuously and returns clockwise the following parameters: Wind Direction (Degrees), Wind Speed (m/s), Air Temperature (° C), Atmospheric Pressure (hPa), Humidity Relative (%), Rain (mm/h) and Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR μE/m2×sec)

ADCP Current meter

The ADCP is located on the bottom at a short distance from the MEDA continuously acquires and returns every 15 minutes the following parameters: Current Direction (Degrees), Current Speed (m/s), Wave Height (m), Wave Period (s), Wave Direction (Degrees), Tide (m)
