Narrative summary of datasetFerry box data
Summary of processing methodologyIn 2015, a vessel was purchased under the project "Mobile Surveillance System for the Black Sea Surface Waters", on which was installed modern equipment of the company SMART GARD LTD from Norway, which has the possibility, fully automated, to carry out monitoring Of the surface waters of the Black Sea, taking into account the data obtained on a number of indicators of sea water, such as turbidity, conductivity, temperature, oxygen concentration, air saturation, chlorophyll. During the implementation of the monitoring activities, in connection with the conducted surveys in 2015 and 2016, a volume of data was accumulated, which are intended for common use and has free access to them on the website of the Association - http: //www.morskizvuci.
