Agulhas rings provide the principal route for ocean waters to circulate from the Indo-Pacific to the Atlantic basin. Their influence on global ocean circulation is well known, but their role in plankton transport is largely unexplored. We show that, although the coarse taxonomic structure of plankton communities is continuous across the Agulhas choke point,(More)
The deep ocean is the largest and least known ecosystem on Earth. It hosts numerous pelagic organisms, most of which are able to emit light. Here we present a unique data set consisting of a 2.5-year long record of light emission by deep-sea pelagic organisms, measured from December 2007 to June 2010 at the ANTARES underwater neutrino telescope in the deep(More)
We present a novel approach named ITCOMP SOM that uses iterative self-organizing maps (SOM) to progressively reconstruct missing data in a highly correlated multidimensional dataset. This method was applied for the completion of a complex oceanographic data-set containing glider data from the EYE of the Levantine experiment of the EGO project. ITCOMP SOM(More)
