Temporal and spatial characteristics of sea surface height variability in the North Atlantic Ocean

  title={Temporal and spatial characteristics of sea surface height variability in the North Atlantic Ocean},
  author={David Cromwell},
We investigate the spatial and temporal variability of sea surface height (SSH) in the North Atlantic basin using satellite altimeter data from October 1992–January 2004. Our primary aim is to provide a detailed description of such variability, including that associated with propagating signals. We also investigate possible correlations between SSH variability and atmospheric pressure changes as represented by climate indices. We first investigate interannual SSH variations by deriving the… CONTINUE READING
