produced using the atmospheric forecasts from NCEP. The NEMO model is one-way nested with the CMEMS Mediterranean Sea operational model (the Mediterranean Forecasting System; Oddo et al. 2014 ) that provides the lateral boundary conditions (LBCs). The satellite level-4 SST product from CMEMS ( Buongiorno Nardelli et al. 2013 ) is ingested into the model through the adjustments of surface heat flux by means of a Newtonian relaxation algorithm. The relaxation coefficient is equal to −60 W m −2 K −1 at

the Mediterranean Sea (Ligurian Sea) in March 2009 on board the R/V Alliance , and the third in the North Sea in May 2010 on board the R/V Heincke . The HZG ac-9 and SIO backscattering meters were deployed on the Baltic/North Sea cruise along with the LISST instrument, while the UoS ac-9 and BB9 were deployed on the Mediterranean Sea cruise. Both the UoS and HZG ac-9 instruments were deployed on the North Sea 2010 cruise. Profiles of salinity and temperature with depth were obtained from SeaBird

1. Introduction Spaceborne radar altimeters have been in use for almost 30 yr. The concepts underlying their operation are well known and have been extensively studied. The radar emits a short electromagnetic pulse, which is reflected by the sea surface. The waveform, that is, the shape and strength of the return echo, is recorded on the satellite. Geophysical parameters of the ocean surface, mainly, the sea surface height, the significant wave height, and the sea surface backscatter, are then

XBTs and CTDs]. The model also capable of incorporating river runoff. It has bean successfully applied at CU to nowcast/forecasts in the Gulf of Mexico ( Choi et al. 1995 ; Kantha at al. 1999 ), studies in the tropical Pacific ( Clayson 1995 ), the North Indian Ocean ( Lopez 1998 ; Lopez and Kantha 2000 ), and the North Pacific ( Engelhardt 1996 ). The operational versions of it are used at Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) for the Mediterranean Sea ( Horton et al. 1997 ), the Red Sea ( Clifford

oflocal winds caused by the effect of relief on the flow.One of these winds (the tramontana) was examinedover the Mediterranean Sea. The data used for the calibration of the capacitive device relate to 5 October1990 (flight 14). The general situation was a northsynoptic flow, with the tramontana wind blowing overthe Mediterranean Sea at about 20 m s-~ in the ABL.Over the flight area, the mean sensible heat flux at the~ea surface was about 50 W m-2, the mean latent heatflux 450 W m-2, and the friction

; ), and Climate Change and Impact Research: the Mediterranean Environment (CIRCE; )] have experimentally documented a vertical recirculation of air masses over the Mediterranean linked to coastal sea breezes ( Millán et al. 1996 , 2000 ; Moussiopoulos et al. 2005 ; Palau et al. 2005a ). This vertical recirculation favors the accumulation of water vapor and pollutants emitted to the troposphere in the Mediterranean ( Gangoiti et al. 2001 ). Based

. We cut from more than 100 T5 probes a sample of wire 10.00 ± 0.02 m long (including 55 probes dropped in the Mediterranean Sea in comparison tests). The results of the weight measurements (with an analytic scale resolution < 0.0005 g) are shown in Table 3 as well as 60 values of ∅ (of which 12 dropped in the sea) and 91 (18 dropped) measured values of δ with Vernier calipers.
