MFSTEP Mediterranean Forecasting System: Toward Environmental Predictions
The MFSTEP projects aims at the further development of an operational foracsting system for the Mediterranean Sea based upon 3 main components:
- The Near Real Time Observing System
- The numerical forecasting system at basin scale and for regional areas
- the forecast products dissemination and exploitation system
Within the Near Real Time Observing System, ARGO floats have been deployed during the pre-top period. Some more Argo floats will be deployed during the TOP period. This is the MEDARGO component of the ARGO project.
