Short summary
For the first time in the Red Sea, a monthly climatology of mixed layer depth (MLD) has been derived based on in situ temperature profiles. The Red Sea MLD pattern displays significant spatial and temporal variability with exceptional features. The MLD variability is dominantly driven by wind stress in the southern part, while heat exchange plays a major role in the remaining parts. The eddies and the Tokar Gap summer jet winds are significantly changing the MLD of the localized regions.
