Early observations of the flow environment around the island of Barbados indicated frequent occurrence of strong current reversals associated with surface salinity fronts. Higher resolution spatial and temporal measurements of the flow regime in 1996 and 1997 provided a comprehensive view of the local surface circulation (0-100 m), revealing that external forcing by North Brazil Current (NBC) rings plays a dominant role in the near-field flow variability surrounding the island. NBC ring forcing… CONTINUE READING
