Instability waves in the tropical Atlantic Ocean are analysed by microwave satellite-based data spanning from 1998 to 2001. This is the first multi-year observational study of the sea surface temperature (SST) signature of the Tropical Instability Waves (TIW) in the region. SST data were used to show that the waves spectral characteristics vary from yearto-year. They also vary on each latitude north of the equator, with the region of 1 N, 15 W concentrating the largest variability when the time… CONTINUE READING
