A CTD/ADCP/surface-drifter survey in fall 2004 reveals the behavior of a mesoscale unidirectional flow coming from the Cretan sea in the south with depths ~1000 m and entering a channel-like area of the Cycladic shelf in the north that forms a contraction leading to a bottom elevation (sill depth ~100 m) and then a return into the Cretan Sea in the lee-side of the sill.
