The product is issued from the global Mercator Ocean/MyOcean operational modeling system (Cf. http://www.mercator-ocean.fr/eng).
The Thermocline depth is the depth at which the temperature is 2°C below the surface temperature. The Thermocline gradient is the intensity of temperature variation between the 2 levels surrounding the thermocline depth. The Shear current is the speed variation (ΔV / ΔZ in Hertz) of strongest currents between the surface and the thermocline depth
