Ship-track continuous dataset in the Mediterranean Sea collected during the cruise BioArgoMed 2015
Two quality controlled datasets here archived were collected during the oceanographic cruise BioArgoMed that held in Spring 2015 over the whole Mediterranean Sea, onboard R/V Tethys 2. The first datset is composed of continuous time series of sea surface temperature (TEMP in °C), sea surface salinity (practical scale, PSAL) and fluorescence of chlorophyll-a (FCHL in mg/m3) along the ship track, with a resolution of 5 minutes. The second dataset is composed of continuous time series of ocean currents profiles along the ship track with a resolution 1 km. The profiles are binned at 8m resolution from 18m until 570m. The quality controlled parameters are the depth (in m), the zonal current (UVEL in m/s) and the meridional current (VVEL in m/s).
