[1] Weekly satellite sea surface height (SSH) anomaly data are used to clarify the mesoscale eddy characteristics in the lee of the island of Hawaii, the largest island in the Hawaiian Island chain. The lee eddy variability can be separated into two geographical regions. In the immediate lee southwest of Hawaii (Region E), eddy signals have a predominant 60 day period and a short life‐span, whereas in the region along 19°N west of ∼160°W (Region W), the eddy variability is dominated by 100 day… CONTINUE READING
