Modification of the loop current warm core eddy by Hurricane Gilbert ( 1988 )

Abstract

Numerical investigation of Hurricane Gilbert (1988) effect on the Loop Current warm core eddy (WCE) in the Gulf of Mexico is performed using the Modular Ocean Model version 2 (MOM2). Results show that the storm-induced maximum sea surface temperature (SST) decrease in Gilbert’s wake is over 2.5 C, as compared with the 3.5 C cooling in the absence of the WCE… (More)
