2000-2021 In situ profiles colocalized with AMEDA eddy detections from 1/8 AVISO altimetry in the Mediterranean sea
Mesoscale eddy detection from 2000 to 2021 are computed using the AMEDA algorithm applied on AVISO L4 absolute dynamic topography at 1/8th degree. Eddy numbers correspond to tracks referenced in the DYNED atlas (https://doi.org/10.14768/2019130201.2). Detection is based on AVISO delyed-time product from 2000 to 2019 and on day+6 near-real-time altimetry from 2020 to 2021. Colocalisation is then made with available in situ profiles from Coriolis Ocean Dataset for Reanalysis (CORA) delayed-time data (113486 profiles) and Copernicus near-real-time profiles (43567).
