Anna Teruzzi, Giorgio Bolzon, Gianpiero Cossarini, Paolo Lazzari, Stefano Salon, Alessandro Crise & Cosimo Solidoro
A reanalysis of Mediterranean Sea biogeochemistry at 1/16 degree was carried out along a time period starting from 1999, using the MedBFM biogeochemical model and data assimilation of surface chlorophyll concentration. MedBFM was driven by physical forcing fields produced as output by the Med-PHY model. The ESA-CCI database of surface chlorophyll concentration estimated by satellite and delivered within CMEMS-OCTAC was used for data assimilation. This reanalysis provides monthly means of 3D fields of chlorophyll, nutrients...
