HyMeX working groups


WG1 WG2 WG3 WG4 WG5 All WGs Members access to WGs


Each Working Group addresses one of the five major themes of HyMeX and HyMeX Science Plan which describes the scientific questions to be tackled and defines the general programme strategy. Scientific activities carried out in the programme are coordinated within the WGs.



WG1: Water Budget of the Mediterranean Sea (see section 3.1 of the WhiteBook)


The Mediterranean Sea is characterised by a negative water budget (excess evaporation over freshwater input) balanced by a two-layer exchange at the Strait of Gibraltar composed of a warm and fresh upper water inflow from the Atlantic superimposed to a cooler and saltier Mediterranean outflow. Light and fresh Atlantic water is transformed into denser waters through interactions with the atmosphere that renew the Mediterranean waters at intermediate and deep levels, and generate the thermohaline circulation. Although the scheme of this thermohaline circulation is reasonably well drawn, little is known about its variability at seasonal and inter-annual scales. The feedback of the Mediterranean sea basin on the atmosphere through the terms of the water budget needs also to be further investigated. Finally, the budget of the Mediterranean Sea has to be examined in the context of global warming, and in particular by assessing the impact of an increase of the ocean heat content on high-impact weather event frequency and intensity.

The Key Scientific Questions in this topic are:
