AbstractThe aim of this study is to combine the abundance variability of jellyfish with the physical and oceanographic forcing at different spatial and temporal scales in the Balearic Sea. The most abundant and frequent species in this area but also in the whole Mediterranean Basin is Pelagia noctiluca. This species is totally pelagic during its entire life cycle as it lacks the polyp stage. Another peculiarity of P. noctiluca is that does dial vertical migration: surface at night and 80-100m during the day. For this ecology study of P. noctiluca multi-diverse technologies were employed: plankton nets, ROVs, CTDs, cameras equipped with laser (to study jellyfish abundance day and night), Lagrangian buoys, drones, several remote sensing images and hydrodynamical models, together with a jellyfish observation system implemented in the shoreline and continental shelf. The complete study demanded the use of both, an oceanography vessel with 24 h operability and also a big data assimilation facility. The combination of all these sources of data was analyzed to characterize this jellyfish variability and its connection with the physical environment at a resolution never achieved before.
