Dataset identification

Title of datasetGalata_observations
Narrative summary of datasetGalata platform real time data is one of the most important sources of multi-parameter operational information in the Black Sea which will serve for monitoring, verification and improvement of modeling results and forecasts as well as for collecting long time series of data needed for climatic research. It also provides useful real time information for marine industry and safety.
Summary of processing methodologyGalata platform real time data The measuring system, placed on the platform, consists of 24 sensors distributed in two main groups: meteorological sensors and oceanographicsensors
