The monthly fields of temperature ans salinity produced by the ISAS-13 analysis have been averaged over the period 2004-2014 to produce a monthly and annual climatology. We provide here :

  • the annual mean temperature, salinity and pressure fields,

  • the monthly mean temperature, salinity

  • the monthly mean mixed layer depth (computed according to temperature: MLDT, or density: MLDS criteria) .

  • the temperature and salinity variance of the data relative to the monthly mean cycle and the number of avalable data.
