[1] Eddy diffusivity of the surface velocity field in the tropical Pacific Ocean was estimated using satellite-tracked drifting buoys (1979 through mid-1996). The tropical Pacific surface current system is characterized by nonstationarity, strong meridional shear, and an energetic mesoscale velocity field. Eddy diffusivity may be defined as the integral of the autocovariance of Lagrangian eddy velocities, requiring both stationary and homogeneous statistics of the eddy field. Eddy velocities… CONTINUE READING
