The islands, which are long and narrow (the long axis lying parallel with the coast of the mainland), rise rather abruptly to elevations of a few hundred feet, with the exception of a few larger islands like Brač; (Vidova gora, 778 m) or the peninsula Pelješac (St. Ilija, 961 m).

The northern and middle Adriatic (NMA) represents the northernmost region of the Mediterranean Sea, extending as far north as 45°N47’ and bounded by the Italian peninsula to the west and the Balkans to the east (Figure 1).
The NMA is connected to the rest of the Adriatic at it southern boundary at the level of  the Palagruza sill (170-m deep, see Figure 1).Transports through this open boundary are significant, mainly as part of the basin-wide cyclonic circulation of the Adriatic (Poulain, 2001).
The understanding of the mesoscale dynamics, representing a major component of the Adriatic circulation energy, based upon adequate measurements is crucial to built data bases and to develop operational forecasting models of the sea environment useful for defense-related operations.
