Synoptic monthly gridded (0.25o) Mediterranean Sea (T, S, u, v) dataset (January 1960 - December 2013) from the NOAA/NCEI WOD Profile Data (NCEI Accession 0157702)

Synoptic monthly gridded Mediterranean Sea temperature (T), salinity (S), and absolute geostrophic velocity (u, v) fields are produced from the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) World Ocean Database (WOD) (T, S) profiles. The optimal spectral decomposition (OSD) (Chu et al. 2003a, b; 2015) and P vector (Chu 1995) methods are used to establish the synoptic monthly gridded (T, S, u, v) fields with (0.25o×0.25o) horizontal resolution, 57 vertical levels, and monthly increment from January 1960 to December 2013.
