The Dynamics of the Loop Current and Shed Eddies in a Numerical Model of the Gulf of Mexico

Abstract

The dynamics of the circulation in the Gulf of Mexico have been investigated using simple, efficient numerical models capable of simulating consistently observed dynamical features, including the Loop Current and the shedding of large anticyclonic eddies from the Loop.. Over 150 model experiments were integrated to statistical equilibrium, typically 3-5… (More)
