Altimeter-derived surface circulation in the large-scale NE Pacific Gyres . Part 2 : 1997 – 1998 El Nin ̃o anomalies

  title={Altimeter-derived surface circulation in the large-scale NE Pacific Gyres . Part 2 : 1997 – 1998 El Nin ̃o anomalies},
  author={Paul T. Strub and Corinne James},
Changes in the sea surface heights (SSH) and geostrophic transports in the NE Pacific are examined during the 1997–1998 El Nin ̃o using altimeter data, sea level pressure (SLP) fields, proxy winds and satellite sea surface temperature (SST). Most of the signal occurs along the boundaries of the basin from Panama to the Alaska Peninsula. Changes in the SSH and alongshore transports along the boundaries are caused both by propagation of signals from the south (stronger between the equator and the… CONTINUE READING
