Malta CMEMS Dashboard - About Data Sources
This page offers detailed information about the data sources used in the Malta CMEMS Dashboard.
The Sea Surface Temperature Climatology (SST)
Description: The SST climatology was computed from a daily optimally interpolated SST Re-Analysis, produced by CNR-ISAC and ENEA in Mediterranean Operational Oceanography Network (MOON) framework, using optimally interpolated SST pathfinder data products.
Resolution: 1/16 (or 0.0625°)
Data collection: The sea surface temperature (SST) climatology was available monthly over the period 1985-2008.
Data provider: Data were provided by Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the Italian National Research Council.
The Ocean Colour Climatology
Description: The SeaDataNet Chl-a concentration SeaWiFS satellite climatology are a series of gridded monthly mean maps for the whole Mediterranean Sea. Chlorophyll-a climatology calculations were performed using a proper weighting function, chosen after specific tests.
Resolution: 1/64 (or 0.01°)
Data collection: The ocean colour climatology was available monthly over the period 1998-2008.
Data provider: Data were provided by Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the Italian National Research Council.
