Abstract : After a short description of the soundings carried out during an oceanographical survey in the Sicilian and Sardinian channels in May and June 1970, the results of the nuclei condensation measurements in the sea are here reported. The data presented are the first about condensation nuclei countings in the Mediterranean. The values found are very similar to those ones found by other researchers, during surveys carried out in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, even if there is no direct reference to them. (Author)
