Abstract:

The long-term goal is to contribute to the understanding of the dynamics of marginal seas such as the Mediterranean by collecting and interpreting accurate Lagrangian observations of currents and satellite measurements of water mass properties e.g., temperature, salinity, chlorophyll concentration. In particular, to study the variability of the surface velocity and temperaturechlorophyll fields in selected basins of the Mediterranean at the meso-, seasonal and interannual scales and to assess the impact of the wind forcing and fresh water runoffs.
