Exploitable results – Important expansion of glider monitoring lines to the Southern Mediterranean.
Result descriptionThis is an important area that is historically and chronically under-sampled; in conjunction with the JERICO TNA program 2 proto glider endurance lines were undertaken. This knowledge output contributes to the development of a glider network in the Southern European Seas (SES), to assess a wide range of scales of variability in the upper 1000m of the ocean, and allow accurate estimates (without aliasing effects due to mesoscale processes) of water transport and characterisation of the physical and biogeochemical properties of the surface and intermediate water masses.
