Self-similarity of the meddy family in the eastern North Atlantic
In this study we analyze two groups of Mediterranean salt lenses: "mid-life' lenses, typically 1-2 years old, observed in the Canary Basin, and younger Meddies from the Iberian Basin. Nonlinear transformation of variables ...
A young lens of Red Sea water in the Arabian Sea
CTD data collected in March-April 1980 in the Arabian Sea during the 22nd cruise of R.V. Akademik Vernadsky were used to investigate the structure and dynamics of a young lens of Red Sea Water (Reddy) in the initial stage ...
Dynamics of dense water cascades at the shelf edge
Plumes of dense shelf water cascade down continental slopes in many parts of the world's oceans and provide a mechanism for shelf-ocean exchange. In this paper a nonlinear process-orientated theory is developed and used ...
Capture and release of Lagrangian floats by eddies in shear flow
A mechanism to explain the observed trapping or release of Lagrangian drifters by eddies is proposed, based on an interaction between the eddy circulation and the background flow. Eddies strong in relation to the background ...
Mediterranean lens "Irving' after its collision with seamounts
In January 1990 a Meddy was observed 100 km to the west of the Irving Seamount just after it had passed through a narrow passage between Hyeres and Irving Seamounts located at the western edge of the Canary Basin. Vertically, ...
