Origin and dynamics of mesoscale eddies in the Catalan Sea ( NW Mediterranean ) : Insight from a numerical model study

Abstract

[1] Past observations and satellite sea surface temperature imagery indicate the presence of mesoscale anticyclonic eddies drifting along the Catalan coast. In September 2001 one of these anticyclonic eddies was surveyed over the shelf break during an oceanographic cruise which permitted the 3-D description of its structure. In this work we investigate the… (More)
