We present a new and fast method for blending altimetry and surface drifters data in the Eastern Levantine Mediterranean. The method is based on a variational assimilation approach for which the velocity is corrected by matching real drifters positions with those predicted by a simple advection model, while taking into account the wind effect. The velocity correction is done in a time-continuous fashion by assimilating at once a whole trajectory of drifters using a sliding time window.
