Impact of continental margins in the Mediterranean sea: hints from the surface colour and temperature historical record
The surface colour and temperature fields of the Mediterranean Sea, as appearing in time series of basin-wide images available in the CZCS and AVHRR historical archives, differentiate between basin interior and continental margins affected by coastal patterns, river plumes, and mesoscale features. The original data were processed to apply calibration factors, to correct for atmospheric contamination, and to estimate chlorophyll-like pigment concentration and surface temperature.
