Monthly cruises at the DYFAMED site, in Ligurian Sea, increment biogeochemical and hydrological data for this long-term series since 1991. DYFAMED is a part of MOOSE network and ILICO infrastucture.
The DYFAMED observation site is located in the Ligurian central area (coordinates: 43°25’N 07°52’E; depth: 2300m). This offshore area is considered as typical as oligotrophic to mesotrophic marine waters and so it can be a reference for largest world ocean areas.The DYFAMED observation is a part of MOOSE network and ILICO research infrastucture.Scientific features of DYFAMED are:- the annual cycles and interannual hydrological and biogeochemical variations study,- the long-term evolution of the ecosystem response in the context of the climate change,- the meteorological forcing effects study,- the estimation of the Ocean-Atmosphere CO2 exchange.This offshore site is sampled monthly to increment biogeochemical and hydrological data for this long-term series.
