Mediterranean Sea

HYMEX - EGYPT 

HYMEX

HyMeX aims at a better understanding, quantification and modelling of the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean, with emphasis on the predictability and evolution of extreme weather events, inter-annual to decadal variability of the Mediterranean coupled system, and associated trends in the context of global change.

EGYPT

The main objective of EGYPT is to investigate the circulation of the water masses in the eastern basin of the Mediterranean, which, strangely enough, is still debated ~100 years after the first circulation schema was drawn by Nielsen (in 1912).
