EMIS - MODEL Monthly mean Salinity of the Bottom Layer (in psu)

Collection: EMIS : Environmental Marine Information System 

Description

Monthly mean bottom layer salinity derived from the different GETM hydrodynamic model implementations for EU regional seas. The bottom layer is defined as the last vertical layer of GETM. It thickness varies with total water depth and with topographic irregularities.

Lineage information

General information: Monthly mean bottom layer salinity derived from the GTEM hydrodynamic model results. GETM solves the three-dimensional hydrostatic equations of motion applying the Boussinesq approximation and the eddy viscosity assumption (Burchard and Bolding, 2002). A detailed description of the GETM equations could be found in Stips et al. (2004) and at http://www.getm.eu. GETM has been successfully applied to different EU regional seas including the Baltic (Lessin et al., 2014), North Sea (Stips et al., 2004), Mediterranean (Macias et al., 2013; 2014a and 2014b) and the Black Sea (Miladinova et al., 2015).
