The validity of apparent subsurface jet currents in the Gulf of Mexico

Abstract

Current measurements were conducted close to major deepwater development locations in the Gulf of Mexico during summer 2004 due to the proximity of a loop current eddy. Shortly after the passage of Hurricane Ivan, some ADCP data sets showed evidence for apparently very strong subsurface jet currents. The very high error and vertical velocities in parts of… (More)
