Wednesday, March 13, 2019. 3:00PM. Webinar: Physical and Biological Implications of Eddy Signatures. Sheekela Baker-Yeboah, University of Maryland. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.


Using the strong correlation between altimeter and in situ pressure sensor-equipped inverted echo sounder (PIES) data, an analysis is done using current altimeter data in conjunction with Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite Ocean Color and Sea Surface Temperature data to gain further insight into the physical and biological implications of mesoscale eddies associated with rings off of South Africa. A comparison is done with the California Current system, another major upwelling regime in the World Ocean, to assess the the relationship of slope eddies in upwelling regions to open ocean eddy signatures.
