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 ...
Global distribution of the decay timescale of mixed layer inertial motions observed by satellite-tracked drifters Park, Jong Jin; Kim, Kuh; Schmitt, Raymond W. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-11-05)The decay timescale of mixed layer inertial amplitudes has been estimated from satellite tracked drifter trajectories from 1990 to 2004 as the e-folding timescale of the temporal correlation functions. The decay timescales ...
