Title: COASTAL DYNAMIC FEATURES ALONG THE NORTHERN LIGURIAN SHELF (PORTOFINO CAPE) IN SUMMER 2004: ROLE OF THE METEREOLOGICAL AND THE TOPOGRAPHIC FORCINGS
Issue Date: 14-May-2010

Abstract: A comprehensive analysis of hydrological, current-meter and meteorological data was performed in the northern Ligurian sea to describe the coastal dynamic near the Portofino cape and its relation with the general cyclonic circulation during summer 2004. Current-meter data was acquired in two coastal sites: the Portofino Cape and the marine area of Arenzano. The hydrological parameters around the cape suggested the presence of two different water masses. The first, located in the lee of the cape, is influenced by local effects, while the second, offshore the cape, is correlated to the general circulation of the Ligurian Sea. The prevalent southern direction of the current in Portofino indicates the presence of a local anticyclonic circulation, associated to the presence of the cape.
