Short summary
We compute a new, high-resolution hydrographic atlas for the Mediterranean Sea using the Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis technique and the latest SeaDataNet aggregated data collection in an effort to contribute to the studies of the long-term variability of the hydrological characteristics of the Mediterranean region and its climate change.
