Short summary
The Algerian Basin plays a key role in the WMED, and the formation and propagation of mesoscale structures strongly influence its circulation. They transport water masses, heat, salts and other properties and also have an impact on chlorophyll and fisheries. We investigated the spatial and temporal distribution of the eddies by applying a detection and tracking method to altimetry data. The results show mesoscale structures with different origins, behaviours and energies.
