Global characterization of Rossby waves at several spectral bands

[1] Global sea surface height anomaly signals from the TOPEX/Poseidon satellite altimeter from 1992 to 2000 are filtered into several spectral bands. These bands include propagating (Rossby, Kelvin, and tropical instability waves) and nonpropagating (annual and interannual basin-scale variability and eddies) signals. These signals are decomposed through a… CONTINUE READING
