Short summary
This study uses different in situ and satellite measurements to investigate ocean circulation in the NW Mediterranean Sea. We analyze how the different instruments (satellite altimetry, HF radars, gliders, ADCPs) capture current variability and how they complement each other. We demonstrate the ability of satellite altimetry to capture the fluctuations of the narrow coastal Northern Current at different timescales. This study provides an integrated approach to a coastal dynamics study.
