  Tyrrhenian Sea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Tyrrhenian Sea is part of the Mediterranean Sea off of the western coast of Italy.
The Tyrrhenian Sea is situated near the African-European Fault; therefore mountain chain and active volcanoes (mount Marsilii) are in its depths.
The name for this part of the Mediterranean Sea derives from the Greek name for the Etruscans, who were emigrants from Lydia and led by the prince Tyrrhenus.

The circulation in the Tyrrhenian Sea, a sub-basin of the Western Mediterranean, is not yet very well understood.
We present results of the first year of lagrangian observations of the surface circulation in the Tyrrhenian sea by means of CODE drifters.
The drifter trajectories reveal a high variability of the south Tyrrhenian circulation, mostly in the central sector where the mean flow is not very well defined due to a relatively strong eddy activity.
