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 ...
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, ...
Optimization of an automated FI-FT-IR procedure for the determination of o-xylene, toluene and ethyl benzene in n-hexane.
The development and optimization of an automated flow injection (FI) manifold coupled with a Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) detector for the determination of toluene, ethyl benzene and o-xylene in an n-hexane matrix ...
Spreading pattern and mesoscale structure of Mediterranean outflow in the Iberian Basin estimated from historical data
The location, spreading pattern, mesoscale structure and the influence of bottom topography on the Mediterranean Water (MW) outflow were studied using historical hydrographic data from the Iberian Basin of the North Atlantic. ...
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 ...
