THE SCIENTIFIC CHALLENGE OF ADVANCING IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN

One of the objectives of the "Medclic: the Mediterranean in one click" project is to investigate the variability of the mesoscale in the Mediterranean.

The scientific challenge in the next few years will be to understand how the oceanic circulation varies, day to day and kilometre to kilometre, to improve maritime and coastal management. The research project is focusing on the study of the interaction between the mesoscale activity and the general circulation during the period 2009-2013.

Thanks to the comparisons made between the simulations and the data obtained via the observation system, it is possible to evaluate the models used and study the interactions between the mesoscale and the general circulation.
