  • Abstract A one-dimensional model of baroclinic instability is used to reconcile two differing interpretations on why neutrally buoyant floats cross the Gulf Stream more readily at subthermocline depths. The study compares the location of the steering level, where the particle speed matches the speed of a propagating meander, to the location of the minimum in the meridional potential vorticity gradient The former locale is the expected site of a maxima in particle exchange, based on kinematic… CONTINUE READING
