A multi-platform synoptic experiment (ALBOREX) was conducted in 2014 in the eastern Alboran Sea in the frame of EU funded FP7 PERSEUS project. The final goal was to monitor and establish the vertical exchanges associated with mesoscale and sub-mesoscale (e.g fronts, meanders, eddies and filaments) and their contribution to upper-ocean interior exchanges.

The project aims at assessing the importance of a new monitoring line across the Algerian Basin between Palma de Mallorca and the Algerian Coast. The Algerian Basin (AB) is located in the south of the Western Mediterranean Sea and is characterized by the presence of fairly fresh surface waters coming from the Atlantic (Atlantic Water- AW) and the more saline waters from the northwestern Mediterranean region interacting at different scales from basin-scale to mesoscale structures....

SOCIB Glider Missions - Canales Endurance Line - was initiated in 2011, with in kind collaboration of CSIC (IMEDEA), covering both the Mallorca and Ibiza channel in a semi continuous operational mode and sampling physical and biogeochemical data. The Ibiza channel is a well-established biodiversity hotspot and accordingly more intensive monitoring of the Ibiza channel is carried out to capture the mesoscale and submesoscale structures and their relation to the weekly to seasonal and annual/inter-annual...
