Short summary
A numerical ocean circulation model has been employed to explore the sensitivity of the forecast skill of mixed-layer properties to the initial conditions, boundary conditions, and vertical mixing parameterisations. All forecasts were validated against observations which were taken in June 2014 to the west of Sardinia.
