Abstract : This report compares the results of the Generalized Digital Environmental Model (GDEM), with observed data from 69 vertical profiles of seasonally averaged temperature, salinity, and sound speed at six locations. The six sites, all located in the Mediterranean Sea, are the Alboran Sea, the Balearic Sea, the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Strait of Sicily, the Ionian Sea, and the Levantine Sea. Evaluations of GDEM-derived temperature, salinity, and sound-speed profiles were performed, considering location, season, and individual parameters.
