Exploitable results – Accurate assessment of nutrients exchange through straits (Gilbraltar Strait and Turkish Straits)

Result description

This assessment aims to accurately quantify the transport of nutrients between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Extensive measurements of nutrient concentrations performed at the time series Gibraltar Fixed Time Series (GIFT) were used in combination with the in situ monitoring of Mediterranean water transport in the area. The results were used to build a nutrient balance box model for the Mediterranean Sea and elucidate the contribution of the water exchange at the Saronikos Gulf to the nutrient status of the basin.
