Mesoscale variability and mean flow interaction near the Gulf Stream as seen by satellite altimetry and numerical modelling Botella, Juan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-09)The interaction between the eddy field and the mean flow near the Gulf Stream is studied here using satellite altimeter measurements and an eddy resolving numerical modeL. The eddy vorticity flux in the quasigeostrophic ...
Satellite observations of chlorophyll, phytoplankton biomass, and Ekman pumping in nonlinear mesoscale eddies Gaube, Peter; Chelton, Dudley B.; Strutton, Peter G.; Behrenfeld, Michael J. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-02)Nonlinear mesoscale eddies can influence biogeochemical cycles in the upper ocean through vertical and horizontal advection of nutrients and marine organisms. The relative importance of these two processes depends on the ...
