Between 22 - 24 August 2014 the regular sampling activities of water for the goals of port baseline survey were carried out in the Italian port of Ancona, coordinated by the CNR-ISMAR of Ancona.
Oceanographic parameters (i.e. salinity, temperature and depth) and water samples for chemical analyses (O2, Chl-a and nutrients content) were collected from the two selected stations inside the port and from the 4 selected stations outside the port.

From the same sampling sites water samples for microbiological analyses (i.e. pathogens) were collected as well.
