Abstract

Physical and bio-chemical characteristics of the upper water column in the vicinity of the Vercelli Seamount were studied from the 23 to the 30 of May 2009 using a Slocum shallow battery-powered glider. In addition to mesoscale and sub-mesoscale structures crossed by the glider, the near-surface water properties changed abruptly on the 27 of May under the influence of a cold nearsurface plume originating from the Strait of Bonifacio and triggered by Mistral winds.
