Climatologies: Mixed Layer Depth

Global climatological monthly mean mixed layer depth (mld) files are computed by processing observed individual profiles of temperature and salinity available from the World Ocean Data Base 1998 based on three mld criteria and consequently averaged within the climatological months and within 1 by 1 degree boxes.
No horizontal interpolation is used. Areas with no observations are shown as blank.
