[1] The seasonal cycle of the near-surface circulation off central Chile was analyzed using satellite altimetry and an oceanic model. To evaluate the role of the wind stress curl on the circulation we performed two identical simulations except for the wind-forcing: the “control run” used long-term monthly mean wind stress and the “no-curl run” used a similar wind stress field, but without curl. The observed and modeled (control run) surface currents showed a strong seasonal cycle and a well… CONTINUE READING
