Monthly mean temperature (degree-C) of the mixed layer derived from the different GETM hydrodynamic model implementations for EU regional seas. The mixed layer is defined as the region of the water column where vertical mixing is possible and it is computed as the depth where potential seawater density (kg/m3) differs by 0.1 from the surface value.

General information: Monthly mean temperature (degree-C) of the mixed layer 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).
