Wind Forced Variability in Eddy Formation, Eddy Shedding, and the Separation of the East Australian Current

Bull, Christopher; Kiss, Andrew; Jourdain, Nicolas; England, Matthew; van Sebille, Erik


The East Australian Current (EAC), like many other subtropical western boundary currents, is believed to be penetrating further poleward in recent decades. Previous observational and model studies have used steady state dynamics to relate changes in the westerly winds to changes in the separation behavior of the EAC. As yet, little work has been undertaken on the impact of forcing variability on the EAC and Tasman Sea circulation. Here using an eddy‐permitting regional ocean model, we present a...[Show more]
