Paper Abstract

Different methods for the extrapolation of vertical profiles from sea surface measurements are presented. The techniques, called Coupled Pattern Reconstruction (CPR) and multivariate EOF Reconstruction (mEOF-R) base on the multivariate analysis of the variability of vertical profiles from hydrographic data and on the hypothesis that only few modes are needed to explain most of the variance/covariance of the fields. The CPR and mEOF-R methods have been applied and tested on the data collected during SYMPLEX survey in a selected area of the Mediterranean sea (the Channel of Sicily), also using simultaneous altimeter measurements as surface input.
