Effect of eddy-wind interaction on Ekman pumping and eddy kinetic energy : a regional coupled modeling study for the California Current System
MetadataShow full item record
The California Current system (CCS) is characterized by the energetic summertime mesoscale and filamentary eddies with typical anomalies in sea surface temperature (SST) and surface current exceeding 2˚C and 0.5 cms–1, respectively. Recent satellite observations show that both SST and surface current at oceanic mesoscales significantly influence the Ekman pumping velocity, suggestive of a subsequent dynamical feedback effect on the eddy energetics. The extent to which this mesoscale coupling is important for the Ekman pumping and the eddy kinetic energy (EKE) budget in the CCS is the focus of this study.
