Year-long current measurements reveal a permanent clockwise gyre over the western cap of Browns Bank. Maximum mean currents (0.25 m∙s−1) over the steep northern flank are uniform in the upper water column, except when pulses of low salinity water arrive from the Scotian Shelf producing stratification and vertical shear. Significant off-bank Eulerian mean currents, found near the bottom on the 100-m isobath, are consistent with the models for topographic interactions of the semidiurnal tides. A… CONTINUE READING
