The production of this interactive story has been possible thanks to the efforts of CLS (France), Lobelia Earth (Spain) and under ESA funding. Data used for visualisation has been extracted from the Copernicus Marine Service MyOcean Viewer and from CLS datasets. The former consists of Sea Water Potential Temperature at the ocean surface, or Sea Surface Temperature (SST) with product ID GLOBAL_ANALYSIS_FORECAST_PHY_001_024 published on the 14th October 2016 by Mercator Ocean International. The latter consists of a dataset of daily Marine Heatwave categories over the Mediterranean Sea containing data for the last 30 years.
This story was produced in the context of European project Digital Twin Ocean Precursor.
