The first regular biological observations at station C1 date to the early 1970s when the study of the net-zooplankton community of the Gulf of Trieste was initiated. The time series station C1 ( Latitude 45°42'2.99"N Longitude 13°42'36.00"E), located in the Gulf of Trieste in the northernmost part of the Adriatic Sea, is part of the Adriatic Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site. It is a shallow coastal station (17 m depth) located at 0.2 Km from the coast, at the outer border of the Protected Sea Area of Miramare , Trieste. C1 was initiated by the University of Trieste, and since October 2005, by the Oceanography Section (OCE) of the OGS. Monitored are zooplankton, phytoplankton, nanoplankton, picoplankton, viruses and several physiological processes. Since 2002, the study was further extended to the benthic environment and a dedicated data-bank was created to store data collected since 1986. Since 2006 the time series station C1 has been formally included in LTER-Italy.
