The CMEMS Mediterranean Sea Physical Analysis and Forecast system comprises a coupled wave-current system composed by an Ocean General Circulation Model based on NEMO v3.6 and a Wave Model based on WW3 v3.14 with a variational data assimilation scheme (OceanVar) for temperature and salinity vertical profiles and satellite SLA along track data. The model has a 1/24˚uniform horizontal grid resolution and 141 unevenly spaced vertical levels. It spans the time period 2016-2019 and it is operationally updated. This dataset refers to the Med-MFC Physical EAS4 system.
