Monthly sea surface temperature and salinity

    For the sea surface temperature and salinity fields, you can download the compressed tar file SSST.tar.Z .

    It contains 24 files of monthly mean SST and SSS on the same grid as MED4.

    CHANGE OF SPECIFICATION 23/1/96 IMPORTANT: The relaxation should be done with a surface flux formulation where t he flux of T or S is proportional to the difference between model and given sea surface values. The proportionallity factor should be the same for everybody in the project: 1.0 meter/day. If you prefer a volume relaxation in your first grid box, this is equivalent to a relaxation time of 1* DZ days.
