This tool allows exploring various ocean variables providing information on the sea surface of the Western Mediterranean Sea. These variables include five key Essential Ocean Variables, temperature, salinity, sea level, chlorophyll-a and currents, and two additional variables, temperature and salinity fronts, derived from the EOVs. The information is obtained from the SOCIB Western Mediterranean Operational system and from satellite data provided by Copernicus Marine Service (CMEMS). Oceanographic features can be explored as layers or time series at specific points defined by the user when double-clicking the layer on display. This tool is aimed for a wide range of end users in the field fisheries sustainability, conservation and education. The implementation fully relies on Web Map Services (WMS). All data handled by the tool is publically available from the SOCIB and CMEMS data servers.
Double-click on the map in order to see the time serie chart of the selected variable at a given point. You can delete these points using the 'Remove marker' button that appears when a marker is clicked.
