Short summary
The paper aims to investigate current and tide correlation in a basin named Mar Piccolo, located in the inner part of the Ionian Sea. It is considered highly vulnerable, being exposed to urban and industrial discharges as well as to intense naval traffic. A continuous monitoring action of the principal hydrodynamic parameters could be a useful managing tool, considering that the diffusion and dispersions of polluting tracers is strictly connected to currents, tide, and waves propagation.
