[1] Seasonal circulation and three-dimensional thermohaline structure within the Panama Bight are examined by employing satellite-derived sea surface winds and dense in-situ hydrographic datasets. The northerly Panama wind jet, associated with a dipole structure of wind stress curl that is positive (negative) on its eastern (western) flank, dominates the bight in winter. This wind jet generates a cyclonic eddy with mean geostrophic velocities of 60 cm s -1 , including the poleward flowing… CONTINUE READING
