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 Special Section entitled “Dense water formations in the North Western Mediterranean: from the physical forcings to the biogeochemical consequences”.
