  • Combining instruments for ocean observation

    This paper analyses deep convection in the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea using a very large dataset. Observational data on temperature and salt content was collected from gliders, floats, ship cruises, and a mooring array. Using a combination of new instruments to study particularly challenging processes such as convection could offer a new approach to ocean observation. This is an introductory paper to a JGR-Oceans Special Section entitled “Dense water formations in the North Western Mediterranean: from the physical forcings to the biogeochemical consequences”.

  • A gliders view on the ocean submesoscale

    Many processes in the ocean operate on horizontal scales of less than 10km and changes occur in hours. The “submesoscale” dynamics are important contributors to the ocean dynamical state and have been identified to be of crucial importance for biogeochemical and biological processes in the ocean.
